Poetry. Women's Studies. FAT DAISIES explores whiteness and womanhood in the age of curated clickbait. These devastating, dead-on poems reckon with privilege, selfhood, and feminism, roping in Sylvia Plath and Kim Kardashian for the ride. Murphy doesn't give us any answers to the hard questions she asks, but FAT DAISIES' examination is fierce and funny enough to make you find your own.

About the Author:

Carrie Murphy is the author of the poetry collection Pretty Tilt. She received an MFA from New Mexico State University. Originally from Baltimore, MD, Carrie works as a teacher, freelance writer, and doula in Albuquerque, NM. FAT DAISIES is her second book.

From Publishers Weekly:

Murphy (Pretty Tilt) takes on the heft of contemporary culture, self-construction and self-preservation, and much more in her second collection, an admirable feat of frank examination. Facebook clicks and pop songs flow in tandem with concerns about race and privilege, a fierce feminism, and a complex awareness of the self. Murphy continually scrutinizes the context behind everything she says, and she addresses her deficiencies before her critics can: "But if I call myself out for being mean/ in this poem, that shows/ I'm not actually mean. Right?" The guilt of being white and privileged haunts nearly every poem, tied up with the admission that "it's a white girl's book about being a white girl." Murphy says the book needs "some positive poems about humanity," but immediately confesses she cannot construct such things. Instead: "There is no moral here:/ in our fonty sea of fake sympathy & manufactured outrage,/ so many people trying so hard to be their own goddamn rainbow." Instead of a moral, and somehow coinciding with the belief that "all of us are terrible/ animals," the book offers companionship—in imperfection, in self-obsession, in questioning. Murphy describes humans as "effervescent in constant reimagining," and her collection spreads that effervescence far and wide. (Sept.)\n
