    I enjoyed the way the love poems in this collection sat next to and with the more fiery poems, how the defiance and righteous anger of the initial poems sharpens the intimacy of the later poems. I'm interested to read more of Crane's work. ...

    Marisa Crane is a poet of the mouth. Mouth as the wound one opens to name the wounded. Mouth as flickering hyphen. As a thing not spoken for. In Our Debatable Bodies, words like ?tomboy? turn yellow in the toothless boy of tomorrow and language lives long enough to land on the same...

    A thundering crash, a bathtub full of warm water, and armor for a world not quite ready for us. This chapbook is a needed reminder, joy, and punch - at least one for each reader. ...

    I really loved this little poetry collection. It is queer through and through, with gorgeous stanzas and a lot of hard-fought love. Crane writes about queer couple fertility, confession, homophobia (external and internalized), anxiety, love, wonder, and hope. I definitely recommend it ...

    Deeply personal and fiercely political, Our Debatable Bodies celebrates queer love in the face of hate and fear. Crane is a prophet of defiance and desire. Heed her call! ...

    I sat down and read this in one setting, pulled from page to page by the ache of recognition. Crane is the master of beauty, desire, anger, and body. She astounded me with her imagery and use of language. As a queer woman it's hard to find writing that feels like home sometimes, but th...

    As the title suggests, this collection has a lot to do with societal perception of the physical body, particularly for women who love other women, and women who don?t conform to gender norms. The book is also about how the world is not yet a welcoming place for people who are LGBTQIA...
