Poetry. THE DISORDERED investigates the mind overcome and overwhelmed by derangement, creating a poetic lexicon of mental disorders in which Anhvu Buchanan walks the tightrope between self-awareness and madness. Exploring the conflict from within with clinical assessment and voices that are overcome and overwrought with each disorder, the resulting text is not only sympathetic, but often empathetic.

[Buchanan's] ability to give poetic order to the disordered thoughts that swirl inside so many is nothing short of remarkable. Once inside those minds, once inside these poems, there's no escaping the powerful effect on our psyches. Empathetic, deeply imagined, and very moving, The Disordered is an extraordinary debut collection. --Toni Mirosevich, author of The Takeaway Bin
If John Ashbery and Georg Trakl had a son, his poems would look a lot like these. Of course they are astonishingly inventive, but they are also are smart, funny, searing, shocking, and most importantly, full of love. In The Disordered, Anhvu Buchanan has achieved something I would have thought impossible: he has managed to fuse surrealism with graciousness. This is a fantastic book. --Dean Rader, winner of the T. S. Eliot Prize
To read Anhvu Buchanan's exceptional first collection of poems, The Disordered, is to relinquish any preconception of what language can or should do. This book astounds in that it locates the reader solidly in worlds within the barely suggested. You will not encounter such concise depth and breadth elsewhere. --Katherine Soniat, author of The Swing Girl
