Praise:

"These beautiful and moving poems are about love. Love for queer art. Love for Arthur Russell’s kaleidoscopic music. Love for language—Reuben Gelley Newman’s poems are archival and elegiac and resonant. I learned new things about Russell’s life and work but this looking back also enlarges the present."

    Eduardo C. Corral, author of Guillotine

"Feedback Harmonies is a vivid, beautiful array of poems that will whisk you away. It is sublime and emotional: "I wasn't prepared to be stung." It craters itself deep inside you."

    john compton, author of The Castration of a Minor God

 

Here is a collection that washes the reader in lyric and music, "a world // in which / to fall." At once erotic, sad, hopeful, and unerringly true. A brilliant debut.

     Jimin Seo, author of OSSIA
