"In Nicole Rollender’s debut poetry collection, Louder Than Everything You Love, the female body is damned and sanctified, playing host to the self and others. These others, whether it be a lover, child, mother, or grandmother, intertwine through the body in visceral ways—through desire, pregnancy, or generational pain and grief."
