poems arrive like gifts when it isn't even your birthday. Witty, deliciously
bite-sized, frisky, strange and real as dreams, these are poems you will

lovely observations for people whose emotional landscapes are populated
by imaginary beings no less poignant than real ones." -- Annalee
A Day in Boyland "will help we feminist readers keep our smile on." -- Girlistic
