Wonderful review of Luxury, Blue Lace in The Adroit Journal

March 11, 2019

Autumn House was thrilled to read this insightful review of S. Brook Corfman’s Luxury, Blue Lace. Reviewer Jennifer Saunders did a wonderful job capturing the nuance, intricacies, and beauty of Corfman’s work. Below we’ve included a brief excerpt from the review, but we hope you’ll pop over to The Adroit Journal‘s website to read the full piece.

That Corfman’s collection should be published at a time when the Trump administration is seeking to roll back civil rights protections for trans Americans and is trying to pressure the United Nations into removing the term “gender” from human rights documents (pushing to replace phrases such as “gender-based violence” with “violence against women,” for example) only heightens the stakes for the speaker in these poems.
