"Christianity or cuisine, cinema or sex manuals, Eros or Thanatos, Artaud or Marilyn Monroe? Marry or suture or eat all of them and you are close to Ravenous. A brutal tour de force."
--Juan Felipe Herrera, author of Half of the World in Light

"Durbin's debut volume sizzles...Throughout this deeply feminist, groundbreaking collection, she employs both the elemental forces of her intellect and a vigorous intensity of startling imagery to implode or explode conventional notions of sexuality and womanhood."
--Maurya Simon, author of Cartographies

"Durbin writes first-rate traditional lyric poems, while at other times she writes poems that push the limits of the avant-garde and, most amazingly, at other times, she makes a loving marriage of the two! This is an exceptional debut by a young poet burning with talent."
--Thomas Lux, author of God Particles

Black Goat is an independent poetry imprint of Akashic Books created and curated by award-winning Nigerian author Chris Abani (author of Becoming Abigail and Song for Night). Black Goat is committed to publishing well-crafted poetry with a focus on experimental or thematically challenging work. The series aims to create a proportional representation of female poets and non-American poets, particularly poets from Africa.

Little Red Riding Hood, Jezebel, Catherine Breillat's Fat Girl, Marilyn Monroe, Amelia Earhart, Pier Paolo Pasolini's Christ--these are only a few of the archetypal and pop cultural characters that populate Kate Durbin's strange and mesmerizing coming-of-age poetry collection, The Ravenous Audience.
