Girls Like You

Girls Like You, by Margot Douaihy (Clemson, SC: Clemson University Press, 2015), viii+64 pp. Paper. ISBN 978-0-9908958-2-4

"Girls Like You is a masterful collection - at turns haunting, hilarious and heartbreaking. Douaihy pulls off a magic trick: by focusing our attention to deeply intimate moments and memories, her gorgeously wrought poems conjure the epic."

-Stephen Karam, 2012 Pulitzer Prize Finalist, author of Sons of the Prophet

"With technical virtuosity, Douaihy deftly moves from crystalline free verse, to densely wrought prose poems, to tight forms like the triolet or villanelle. Her speakers are plaintive, seductive, and strident in turn, bearing witness to a young woman's coming of age on the cusp of the twenty-first century."

-Amy Lemmon, author of Saint Nobody
