'Maggie Nelson is one of the most electrifying writers at work in America today, among the sharpest and most supple thinkers of her generation'
Olivia Laing

In this electrifying and raw debut anthology, Maggie Nelson unpicks the everyday with the quick alchemy and precision of her later modern classics The Argonauts and Bluets. The poems of Shiner experiment with a variety of styles-syllabic verse, sonnets, macaronic translation, Zen poems, walking poems-to express love, bewilderment, grief, and beauty. This book, Nelson's first, heralded the arrival of a fully formed, virtuoso voice.

Huffington Post

'Nelson is so outrageously gifted a writer and thinker'
Washington Post

'Maggie Nelson writes like no one else on the planet'
Jezebel

'Maggie Nelson [is] so much better than anything I've read for a long, long time'
