Poetry. "Sarah Vap's END OF THE SENTIMENTAL JOURNEY is a beautiful collection of the most critically astute filth I've ever read. With humor, stunning insight, and shimmering vulgarity Vap invents a fresh means of poetic critique in the poem itself. Wheshe unveils for us is our own culpability in the gendered policing of contemporary poetry. I, for one, feel stimulated at being called out. I love this book."—Dawn Lundy Martin
