“Marty Cain can write a damn sentence. I mean: he can write one hell of a sentence. And you can enter that underworld. And I hope you do. Another way of saying: he can cast a field in which illegibility and truth conjunct, and in so doing, broadcast the multiply-rooted blooming wound of being a body. These essays are dazzling and acute. Did you know a body can hold a sigh for decades before releasing it? This collection knows. This collection teaches.”
– Selah Saterstrom, author of Slab and Ideal Suggestions
