Product description

Review

"Gatwood is at her best here: blending sharp storytelling with attention to craft, making sure each finish line leaves a reader breathless. These are poems that dig into you, build a home, and stay a while." - Hanif Willis-Abdurraqib, author of The Crown Ain't Worth Much

"In New American Best Friend, Olivia Gatwood slices with a sharp, keen humor into the beguiling and calamitous experience of American adolescence and young adulthood." -Carrie Fountain, author of Burn Lake
