Though she holds life precious, she is not precious herself: alert to Tommy Cooper, paper cups, biros, belisha beacons… Seduction, sharp edges, high seriousness, satire–this book has them all… Fetch, her sensitive, sassy third collection, is her best yet.
––Anne Berkeley, Seam
These are dark poems in the best sense of the word, edgy, unnerving, but glittering, too. Tamar Yoseloff can make a visit to the dentist or a lamb curry sexy and sinister. I’ve followed her career from the beginning; Fetch is her most ambitious book yet, and her best.
These compressed and vivid poems have a mind and a music all their own. Tamar Yoseloff is emerging as one of the best poets of her generation.
