Publisher's Summary

One of the most recognizable young poets in America, Olivia Gatwood dazzles with her tribute to contemporary American womanhood in her debut book, New American Best Friend. Gatwood's poems deftly deconstruct traditional stereotypes. The focus shifts from childhood to adulthood, gender to sexuality, violence to joy. And always and inexorably, the book moves toward celebration, culminating in a series of odes: odes to the body, to tough women, to embracing your own journey in all its failures and triumphs. 

Contains mature themes.

Music

Amazing writing - absolutely love Gatwood. I couldn’t focus because of the background music. It was too much - it took away from the poems

Amazing poetry, but the music

The poetry is amazing! I love this artist style and her words speak to me. BUT, the music in this recording detracts from the poetry. It is often really hard to hear her words over the music.
