Poetry. "In ORPHAN MACHINES, Carrie Hunter stages a kind of cyborgian theater where ideology is brilliantly dismantled to unmask the real. With each startling construction, spaced across aerated pages or set in tight prose blocks, she discovers a form of liberation struggle. Her subjects—philosophy, sexuality, sociality, music—always interpenetrate, because it is life that is at issue, and life is mixed up. She writes, 'The important thing about what I am is its not black and white.' She asks, 'Should I fake normalcy or be real?' Read this book and find out: Carrie Hunter is the real deal."—Kit Robinson
