Lust. Love. Betrayal and loyalty. Temptation and hilarity. Gabrielle Freeman dissects her speakers' hearts, tenderly, with supreme attention to what it is to be human, female, and fierce. Gabrielle Freeman's poems are bad--by which I mean badass bold. Michael Jackson bad. Freeman's bad and you know it. That's why you read her. When She Was Bad is a smart, compassionate, tightly crafted and explosive debut. -- Denise Duhamel
