Poetry. "The relation of these histories and whimsies is idiosyncratic and intimate, sweet and unself-conscious, risky and vulnerable. It is also political."—Michelle Detorie
"Treadwell's is a difficult but deeply rewarding poetry. It has a precision and a tenderness all of its own."—Nathan Thompson
"This is a feminine poetry, marvelous, tough, and unrelenting."—Maureen Thorson
"The new is not Hollywood and it is not America and it is not the founding fathers or the avant-garde who, like Jessica Alba, are made of 'lite toxicity.' There is a seductive and false new, a California of 'the naggy sunshine & / the mean & stupid fucks,' but there is revolution, a 'tender cocktail,' and also birth, which in all of its muddiness offers that 'the new animal is / born of the new animal.' These poems are a delicate unanesthetized surgery in no sterile, metallic arena. Treadwell does her work with steady hands but in the unsteady open, extracting what value of the future remains even in a world with the rich 'in their prissy communes,' even among the texting 'platinum herd.'"—Anne Boyer
