Play Button By Liz Robbins, Winner of the 2010 Cider Press Review Book Award, is now available in a Kindle ebook edition for only $9.99.
Poet Denise Duhamel writes:
“Liz Robbins’s poems are smart, savvy, dangerous, and as bold as the big hoop earrings her characters are fond of wearing. Robbins does not shy away from the provocative or mischievously formal. By turns elegiac and political, poppy and poignant, Play Button reconciles the good girl with the bad girl in us all.”
