Poetry. With voices of joy, triumph, comaraderie and anarchy, Elizabeth Treadwell's utopian democracy opens a new door into the overlooked corners of world -- a world in which women have dignity, honor and aplomb, and where the disenfranchised have intelligence and spunk. Her use of language is nothing short of heart-stopping, and the conversations that create the polyphonies are restless, constructivist, and dream-inspiring. The stories are funny and engaging -- scenes from the barrios, psychiatric wards, dorms, small towns, cities, and grandma's houses we all know, love, and sometimes fear. Comfortable yet edgy, always utterly intelligent -- POPULACE is utterly irresistible -- Susan Smith Nash.

Review:

"Elizabeth Treadwell is young, she's poetic, and she kicks some serious ass!" -- Quentin Tarantino

"Real-time actions (of one's) are as interrupted as dream-actions--therefore one sees right between them, in them in this text. One's going on seeing, while also being separately in those actions. Treadwell has these actions meet, in Populace, in a way that's incredibly acute." -- Leslie Scalapino
