those poems began with a bag of kid's seashore toys--primary-colored alphabet sand-molds--and a quiet afternoon. They ended up wanting a spreadsheet to maintain tune of the 1st phrases. "Love" is the "L" notice for the entire disorderly abecedarians since it creates a thread with which to collect the entire ribbons of artwork, faith, human cruelty, anger, and the endless intrusions by means of the random that either buffer us from a regularly distressing international and buffet us with that very same world's consistent noise. as the right abecedarians have a extra orderly association with the universe just by advantage of progressing throughout the alphabet the best way it truly is speculated to line up, the "L" phrases shift and wiggle while the poems fun-house-mirror one another. eventually, the poems achieve for peace with out not easy both realizing, or persistence, finding out that it's not simply beneficial, yet stunning to bounce with the monsters beneath our beds.

"I idea I knew my ABCs--until I learn Devon Miller-Duggan's Alphabet Year. The poet's number of either 'disorderly' and 'proper' abecedarians accomplishes a technical tour-de-force that demanding situations and delights, an adherence to shape that mysteriously unleashes language at its so much religious, penetrating, and loose. those are poems to discover and delight in time and again over." 
--Tania Runyan, writer of Second Sky

"Miller-Duggan's observe video games are as shut as so much people will ever get to the 'Pornographic Priestess' of the Beatles' 'I Am the Walrus' repute. equivalent elements Scrabble, intercourse, Tarot, crossword, acid journey, and theology, pureed in a phrontistery mixer set at warp velocity, her poems are tough, repetitive, uncanny, and unsuitable in all of the correct methods, like whatever Circe conjured as much as go the time."
--Richard Peabody, Editor of Gargoyle Magazine

"In my joyous and tough romp via Alphabet Year, i found exhilarating methods of placing phrases jointly; i found phrases i did not understand, phrases that may be used to sew and carry again coming near near chaos, phrases I now continue like pets. Alphabet Year is a ebook like no different i've got learn. It dives with zest into the turbulent ocean of language. With unbelievable like it wrestles opposed to human cruelty, time, and dying. this can be a big book."
--Jeanne Murray Walker, writer of Helping the Morning

"In Alphabet yr, Miller-Duggan exams even if we all know the realm, and our language, in addition to we predict. via inventively paired poems, she alternately frames this as a philosophical dilemma--how to categorize the seasons, communicate of angels, or understand if the holy abides in disaster--and as a extra fast drawback of the way, amidst darkish days, we're to make lives with our brilliant, wounded household. An bold triumph of avant-garde formalism."
--Adam McGee, dealing with Editor of Boston Review
