PRAISE FOR THE BORROWED WORLD:
In The Borrowed international, Emily Leithauser’s formal mastery—her consummate knack for writing strains and sentences as crisp and chic because the Edo prints to which she can pay homage—entwines with the sheer immediacy and vulnerability of the poet’s voice. Leithauser portrays the inevitability of loss, in romantic and familial relationships, and but, with no ever supplying fake resolutions or pat conclusions, she manages to make her poems themselves convincing remains opposed to loss. I suggest that this publication is made to suffer. The Borrowed global marks the coming of a huge talent.

The Borrowed global is her gorgeous debut.
