The poems in Landscape with Sex and Violence explore what it means to exist within a rape culture so entrenched that it can't be separated from the physical landscapes in which it enacts itself. Lyrically complex and startling-yet forthright and unflinching- these poems address rape, abortion, sex work, and other subjects frequently omitted from male-dominated literary traditions, without forsaking the pleasures of being embodied, or the value of personal freedom, of moonlight, and of hope. Throughout, the topography and mythology of California, as well as the uses and failures of language itself, are players in what it means to be a woman, a sexual being, and a trauma survivor in contemporary America.
