The Uses of the Body

“The poems of Landau’s stunning second collection [The Last Usable Hour] are dark, urgent, sexy, deeply sad, and, above all, powerful.… Landau’s abandon is thrilling in the way danger always is.”

Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

“Throughout, understated themes appear, disappear, and return as they do in music, and Landau is adept at capturing desire with unique details: ‘There’s a little hole in my boot. / Could you put your finger in it?’ Caesuras break the speed of her lines, and she reveals a painterly control of white space.”
