Read full description of the books If I Should Say I Have Hope:"The title of Melnick’s stunning book is a microcosm of the poems within—the uncertainty of if I should say followed by the defiance of I have hope. Her poems follow moments of unmooredness (I am best / when I dabble in consciousness and a soundly / spinning room) with blinding insight (You wouldn’t know happy if it kissed you on the mouth)—tiptoeing followed by a kick to the head. On the melancholy-go-round of these poems, there’s a swan-seat for sadness but also a tiger called Beauty and a horse called Hope. The unexpected music and syntax of Melnick’s work will make you want to ride/read it again and again."
- Matthea Harvey
