    Luxury, Blue Lace is a short collection of poems that tell a bigger story. Using many different poetic forms, Corfman delves into an exploration of self, of childhood and family, of what's wrong and what's not. I'm not a big poetry fan; in fact, I'm pretty sure this is my first book of poetry that wasn't required for school. I read it on a whim. It's very short, very abstract, and very thought-provoking.

    Corfman's debut poetry collection, winner of the 2018 Rising Writer Prize, is a lyric examination of how family and the world exert life-altering changes on a body in flux (as well as how those changes are negotiated and resisted). Among these poems, sectioned in nonlinear narratives that delve into culturally salient objects like dolls, desire and expectation clash in finely-honed language. This collection is a compelling heartache.

    It’s not that the poetry was bad. I’m sure for people who enjoy poetry, it was just fine. I just didn’t connect to it. It didn’t make me feel anything.
