About Boyishly:

"Tanya Olson’s magnificent poems carry the weight of giants, tigers and The People’s Act of Love. And the ribcage hallways of Jonah, “When inside the whale, it is best to be / inside the whale. Do what you are inside / the whale to do.” Every page is a new cleansing fire. Olson’s book Boyishly works the ear and heart hours after reading like a vibrating bell. Waking inside meditation is what the best poems must be, like this book you are about to read, many thanks to Tanya Olson for giving us these strange and beautiful poems."
