"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."

"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."

An bold triumph of avant-garde formalism."
