Over the weekend, Rebecca Bornstein, writing for The Rumpus, published a review of Celeste Gainey's the GAFFER, and raved about the use of contrastig tones in the book:
“The straddling of these two tonal positions- aggressive and wounded- is done masterfully in this collection, and mirrors the two mediums the gaffer has to work with: light and dark. A good performance requires both. And the GAFFER provides us with both: a sense of danger and a sense of magic, a sense of realness and performity, the brute arc and the black shadow of its absence.”
