Read full description of the books Sleepyhead Assassins:I want to use all the bombastic, evocative words that reviewers use to describe poets on fire, and I might. Mindy Nettifee's words are a bird attack, an epileptic light you yearn for, a favorite meal of starches and fat gravy that is otherwise known as 'satisfaction'. Her phrases are convoys carrying donor organs; hearts for the heartless. Her sentences are funeral processions with all the cars playing the same A.M. radio station with the knob snapped off. It is a waving flag made of stolen underwear. It is the petulant refusal to obey the obvious, the sentimental, the cloying, the safe. You need this book in your brain.
