Poetry. "PICTURE PALACE gives an old story a new language: girl grows up in church, thinks she can leave, but then years later realizes that despite all the things she's done to get out that she is still captive. That the girl sees this fact through the words and images of others is what makes Stephanie Young's first book since TELLING THE FUTURE OFF something so new, so moving, so resonant with connective tissue that to be so caught feels like responsibility and also liberation"—Juliana Spahr.
