Poetry. Those who are familiar with Gina Myers's previous work will be pleased to see SOME OF THE TIMES build from the same base of social consciousness while also pushing in new directions. Myers captures what it feels like to live in this era of late capitalism in a way that few other poets do. This is a book for those who suffer and endure and laugh about the suffering later.
Gina Myers is the author of two full-length poetry collections, A MODEL YEAR (2009) and HOLD IT DOWN (2013), as well as several chapbooks, including most recently Philadelphia (Barrelhouse, 2017).
