Synopsis: Millie Niss was probably best known as a blogger, video-maker and new media artist, but this collection ? compiled by her mother and long-time collaborator, Martha Deed ? demonstrates that she wrote poetry of great originality and inventiveness both before and during her new media career. She died in 2009, at the age of 36, and struggled with the effects of Behcet's disease for many years before that: yet the overwhelming impression left by this collection is one of vigour and high spirits. It's one of the few books of poetry I can call to mind without a dull page in it. It also consistently manages to combine experimentalism with entertainment. There is a wide range of styles ? from mock-epic to prose poetry to picture poems ? but Millie's personality suffuses them all: outspoken, politically radical, satirical, rude and funny; quirky, sometimes whimsical, sometimes wildly digressive; yet always down to earth and sharply observant. ?Edward Picot, web artist and critic Millie Niss draws from so many different poetic influences and writes in so many different tones ? wistful, sneaky, sincere, outraged, outrageous, sweet and funny and snide ? that it makes me nearly dizzy. This is a wonderful, whimsical compendium of a mind on fire, devoted to poetry, mad for malarkey. In rants, e-mails, poetic forms, collaborations, school notebooks, mock epics, found text, imitations, concrete poetry and intercepted letters, Millie calls it like it is and we are so lucky for it! ?Kazim Ali, poet, author of The Far Mosque (Alice James Books)
