Whether she is exhuming the bizarre ("Cryptozoology" and "A Short History of Unusual Fish"), exorcising her demons, ("Hog Butcher of Workshop Table" and "On Why I Shouldn't Read Books") or celebrating the uncelebrated oddballs of the world ("Little Heard True Stories of Benjamin Franklin" and "Crack Squirrels"), Aptowicz's poetry sings and singes. Everything is Everything illuminates the dark corners of the curiosity cabinet, shining the light on everything that is utterly strange, wonderfully absurd and 100% true.
  • Cristin O'Keefe Aptowicz is a poet I had not read before. I chose her because I trusted the works published by Write Bloody Book and I prefer women poets. I picked two of her books 'Everything is Every Thing' and 'Dear Future Boyfriend.' Each book blew me away. She has a gift of seeing things and then translating them into poetic form with a humorous, yet biting tongue that makes each poem captivating. I read these two book on back to back days, cover to cover. I have since went on to purchase her three other poetry titles and I am waiting for them to arrive. I read a ton of poetry and no one has excited me like this in years.

  • I saw Aptowicz read MC a poetry slam, and read some of these Poems, as well as older ones, so take into account that when I read this book, I could distinctly hear her distinctive voice. And yet, as I read along, skipping around a bit as is my preference, I started to allow myself to read the poems in my own voice. The ones that struck a chord with me out of a shared experience in particular.

    I seriously enjoyed this little book.

    Mostly it's fun, and sometimes it's questionable whether it can actually qualify as a poem. But then, almost out of nowhere she'll hit you with something that could never be mistaken as anything else. The first is actually my favorite, by far.

    This is not ground-breaking, earth-shattering poetry which will turn the literary world upside down. But it doesn't pretend to be. It is, honest and unpretentious and most importantly it's highly enjoyable. I found myself reading some of my favorites to family and friends, when usually I refrain from subjecting them to my particular love of poetry.

    Which brings me to the cornerstone of my review: if you like poetry, at all, then you will certainly enjoy this. If you're obsessed with words as much as I am, or simply enjoy hearing the musings of another observant soul, or if you just want to *hear* an honest voice, then buy this.

    If you don't like any of these things, then, I don't know, watch Gossip Girl?

  • The auther is one of my favorites--always insightful, frequently funny, and sometimes poignant. Even she doesn't fall into the 'angry young artist'category, her open expressive poetry still packs a wallop. It would be hard to pick a favorite in this volume, but I confess to listening to 'Crack Squirrels' seven times in a row during a particulary boring business confeece call (phone was on mute, or course). Anyway, I love this artist's written work and the energy she displays in performing it.

  • For me Cristin O'Keefe Aptowicz is one of those poets whose witty, neatly wrapped poems each announce to the world, "This is yet another poem you cannot write because I have already written it." Her work has the admirable quality of being at once well-crafted and humble. For Aptowicz, a poem is not something to be set upon a pedestal with two dedicated track heads from your new track lighting trained on it from complementary angles. Her poems are more like the track heads themselves: compact, useful objects that you use to illuminate your life but which otherwise blend with the surroundings. For those unfamiliar with Aptowicz's work--this is her fifth book of poems--she is unapologetically a spoken-word poet. By that I mean all of these poems were written to be read out loud either at the Bowery Poetry Club in New York City where she helps curate the Urbana Poetry Slam, a series she founded in the late 90s, or out on tour with other poets, which she does quite often. Consequently, the poems are usually funny and lack the kind of densely textured language you might have to read two or three times to understand. For some, that's a bad thing. For me, it makes her my heroine. I do not mean to suggest that the poems lack literary skill. They don't. Poems like "Hound" and "The Air Up There" read like any you might find in a literary magazine; the latter ends with the lines, ". . . some of the beautiful/people were dining in borrowed jackets/their ties snapping off when their women/pulled them in for a kiss." But more often than not, I found myself thinking, "Why didn't I realize that a poem could be so unpretentious, so simple, so short?" The poems in Everything Is Everything give a clear portrait of a young woman from Philadelphia living and working in New York City in a loving and quirky relationship with a boyfriend who is hysterically prone to excess in most things. Reading Aptowicz makes you feel like you know them both in the same way that fans of Spaulding Gray used to feel they knew both him and his girlfriend Renée. The poems in this book do nothing short of delight, particularly for those who work for a living, enjoy interesting documentaries, or whose "pilot light flickers,/but never goes out."

  • Holy Moly Smokes!!! This book will rip out your teeth and then slowly put every one of them back in your mouth and reteach you to chew. This is one of the best books of poetry that I have ever read. Cristin O'Keefe Aptowicz is truly one of the greatest voices in modern poetry. I absolutely love this book, I have four books of poetry by Ms. Aptowicz and trust me I will soon be ordering the one that I am missing..

  • This is one of my favorite books of poetry. It ranks easily in my personal Top 5 books I've read all year. Ms. O'Keefe Aptowicz is alternately funny, informative, brooding, charming, and always interesting. The flow of the poems in the book is amazing and makes it a book you can sit down and dig into. A lot of poetry is best taken one piece at a time. This book is an amazing 8 course dinner that doesn't skimp on the wine. A great read.

  • I just recently picked up Cristin's book, and it has been in heavy rotation at my crib, which has a lot of other poetry fighting for that coveted position. Cristin writes poems that are smarter than you (smarter than me, anyway), yet never makes you feel dumb in the process. She's accessible, wry, funny, and the type of writer who makes you feel totally at home within her pages. Kudos for another home run collection from the insanely talented O' Keefe Aptowicz.
