What if all women try to Steal It Back? America, art, life. They're in Sephora, on Twitter, at McDonald's. They're single mothers and teachers, Catholic schoolgirls and martyrs. And they're all stealing it back. Sylvia Plath gets a Malibu beach house. Lady Gaga hatches from an egg of triumph. They're hovering between the tax collectors and the Romantics, between Florida's lakes and every lavish thing in seventeenth-century France. Steal It Back journeys through America's factories, its Bed Bath & Beyonds, and its homes, where desires rise and fall, where they decide what they will fight for and what they will concede. Steal It Back, Sandra Simonds's fourth poetry collection, is a primal scream that we can't help but pay attention to.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"She contends with being one life amongst the millions of lives differentiated simply by place, time, and sex. Simonds playfully and powerfully writes in the recognition of every attempt at self-preservation.-- "Publishers Weekly" (1/1/2015 12:00:00 AM)
"These unforgettable new poems sway (meaning both swing and persuade) with the kind of intellectual heft and verbal play only Sandra Simonds cam make."--Terrance Hayes "Publishers Weekly" (1/1/2015 12:00:00 AM)
