"Look, the future is all telepathy and disappointment and pretending we haven't always been winging it. Every day we're the strongest we'll ever be. What doesn't kill you hasn't killed you yet." From Greek mythology to Top 40, Pavlov to Sartre, the space station to the zoo, Annelyse Gelman's debut collection of poems collides dark humor and unexpected sweetness.
"The instability of life, its aching craziness, is not usually met with the poise these poems show. Vulnerable yet full of spunk, Everyone I Love Is A Stranger to Someone is startlingly delightful--or is that delightfully startling? Either way, reader, prepare yourself for a new, strange joy."
