" Without pretension or desperate need for approval, and with amazing originality, Mallory's Collected Poems and Stories succeeds where so many contemporary writers fail. She connects the personal to the universal, finds humor in sorrow, and writes with such detailed realism it begins to feel profoundly abstract. The poems feel like stories and the stories feel like poems. Quietly, I think Mallory has written one of the best books of whatever this current cultural situation is." - ANDREW WEATHERHEAD
" Mallory Whitten is easily one of my favorite writers. She painted a steak for me once and covered it in rhinestones. She called it the disco steak and I hung it on my wall. Every morning I get up and it sparkles and shines. This is her book. It'll make you sparkle and shine after you read it. I hope you're ready to sparkle and shine. I hope you're ready to say Mallory Whitten is one of your favorite writers too. She made this book just for you. You're welcome"

" Mallory Whitten is a ninja of minutia, poems about graduating high school, being half asleep, needing to be skinny tomorrow, sitting around a bonfire, sexy fart noises, pooping puppies, and apologizing to people for things that don't matter to you but matter to them. The book also contains the unforgettable Knife Girl, a poem about a true high school outcast, so truly outcast her story would never make it in any YA book or young adult show. " - NOAH CICERO
