New! Read Kathleen Reeves' review of Ultra-Cabin at Full Stop.
"We might read 'holding the world in the back of our minds' as a way of negotiating between what is promising and what can hurt us. The poems in this volume perform this mediation without sacrificing the potency and immediacy of both the physical world and the realm of structures and concepts. It is a joy to be in the atmosphere of these poems, which boldly reconfigure the field of relations comprising the mind, other people, the world." –Kathleen Reeves
"Emotive and cerebral, giving way to the surrealities of intuition and pushing back with a keen intelligence." –Ruth Williams
"I am stunned by Kimberly Lambright's verbal acuity, its lightning shifts and sudden, diamond-like stillnesses. And there are images in this book that would wake Breton from the dead. Hats off to this uniquely adventurous and mature first volume." –Christopher Howell
"Artful and wry, smart and moving – Kimberly Lambright's poems are made of such carefully rendered moments that the mundane becomes very wonderfully strange. Ultra-Cabin is a book that will knock you out and invite you in, sometimes in the same brilliant breath." –Kathryn Nuernberger
"In short but dense sisterpunk stabs, Lambright's pink meat mind transmits an awareness of large spaces and an attention to specifics that, when taken together, gives the reader this perfect field guide for, in her words, 'the way you interpret / the dark world happening to you.' The poems of Ultra-Cabin speak to us in a lexicon of friendship and shared weirdness that's funny, familiar and, most of all, understanding. Kim's poems see us for what we are, and still believe we can be beautiful." –Ben Kopel
