From the publisher

'The work of a genuine original ... surreal ... funny ... subversive' Sunday Times

What if a deer did porn? Is it legal to marry a stuffed owl exhibit? And what would Walt Whitman's tit-pics really look like?

Free-wheeling and surreal yet deadly serious, and including the viral hit 'Rape Joke' ('An oblique mini-masterpiece' - Guardian), this book shows one of our most original poets at her virtuosic best.

'Lockwood has written a book at once angrier, and more fun, more attuned to our times and more bizarre, than most poetry can ever get' Stephen Burt, The New York Times Book Review, Books of the Year

'Lockwood should enter the canon forever . . . her lines left me crying on the subway' Kat Stoeffel, The Cut

'The little hairs on my back rose often while reading Motherland Fatherland Homelandsexuals . . . That's biological praise, the most fundamental kind, impossible to fake' Dwight Garner, The New York Times
