9781625579041: How to Feel Confident with Your Special Talents

Poetry. "These prose poems are the best kind of revolution: sly and funny, subversive and wise."—Sarah McCarry

"Like everyone else, I am desperate to get it right, to know how to dress for the Ouija board or how to stop being in love with people I'll never meet. The volume of what we don't know, what we need to know NOW could drown a lonely surfer, but Guess & Olszewska have the skills and the code that will bring us back to life. They comb, channel, and distill the ether. They answer the questions beating so secretly in our chests, we didn't know to ask them. They build a stunning pedagogy of the surfpressed. I would like to live in the world where these were the answers and allegories Googling provided. Let's put on a dramatic amount of make-up, set a small fire for the smell of singed crosshair, and tell the birds nesting in the eaves that it's over. This book emits a peculiar, beguiling, electric calm."—Danielle Pafunda
