Description

Hard Ass is a daring and bold collection of poetry, filled with passion and anger. McCartney skillfully hones her craft, yet the poet's confessional voice feels raw and honest as if she merely purged her words onto the page. Using weightlifting as a metaphor to explore the poet's inner world and her romantic attachments, McCartney both reinforces and undermines the transcendence of love.
