The Emily Valentine Poems, Zoe Whittall’s second collection of poetry, challenges the impossible notions of femininity that permeate our culture. The texts within include self-portraits, prose poems, fake fan letters, and confessional lyric snapshots. These are pharmaceutically enhanced tributes to the hangovers of twenty-something love and to the pop icons from an unconventional 1980s childhood. With The Emily Valentine Poems, Zoe Whittall offers up the perfect soundtrack for the culturally literate rebel in all of us.
This reminds me that I would like to know everything about this person.
