Poetry. Memoir. LGBT Studies. "A personification of the desolate and sensuous Utah landscape swaggers through JoSelle Vanderhooft's DESERT SONGS, pining for the one partner who understands in this hallucinatory fusion of autobiography and history, veering from saucy patter to timeless fable and back again, the desert permeates all, as god or goddess, as lover as shepherd and scourge of the peoples who traverse it, as a backdrop to memory and heartache."—Mike Allen
