About Tina:

"Warning: If you're looking to find out who Tina is, these poems won't help you very much. But if you're interested in reading the work of one of our most obsessively inventive, hilariously human, and sometimes crushingly affecting poets, then you've come to the right book. Through a series of direct addresses and lyric effusions to "Tina," Peter Davis reminds us that sometimes talking, even casually, to anyone else is always talking significantly to oneself—and by extension, all of us. TINA is a suckerpunch, and then you see stars. Sometimes it's so funny, it hurts a little bit, and sometimes it hurts so much, it just hurts."
—Matt Hart
