Oh, Terrible Youth (Paperback)
Backordered. Place an order and we will let you know when to expect your book.
In her fourth collection of poetry, Cristin O'Keefe Aptowicz uses her youth as muse. Whether ruminating on the trials and tribulations of life in the single digits ("My Elementary School Confessions"), exposing her unapologetic high school geekiness ("The Secret Language of Nerds") and exalting all the melodramatic yet sincere love verses she ultimately penned in vain ("On Reading Old Unrequited Love Poems"), this plump collection commiserates and celebrates all the wonder, terror, banality and comedy that is the long journey to adulthood.
