So Much Synth  (paperback)

Honored as a "Best Book of the Year" by Publishers Weekly.

Subversions of idiom and cliché punctuate Brenda Shaughnessy's fourth collection as she approaches middle age and revisits the memories, romances, and music of adolescence. So Much Synth is a brave and ferocious collection composed of equal parts femininity, pain, pleasure, and synthesizer. While Shaughnessy tenderly winces at her youthful excesses, we can humbly catch glimpses of our own.

"Shaughnessy finds ever new ways to rend the heart in this biting and poignant anthropological study of girlhood and adolescence."―Publishers Weekly
