About The Dance of No Hard Feelings:

"Delirious Adventure stories in the shape of poems."
—Laurie Anderson

"Bibbins . . . has the courage to stop, to pin down the always irrational present moment, and the reader is eager to follow, to inhale its scathing or enticing perfume. . . . A brilliant young poet."
—John Ashbery
