    1. Wow. My head is spinning after reading Duhamel’s latest collection. I can only imagine this is how she must have felt as she lived the detailed experiences. The poems in “Blowout” contain a strong narrative arc; they document her marriage, its unraveling, the divorce and its nasty aftermath, and the beginning of a new relationship. Her renowned humor is evident throughout, which elevates this collection from merely being a rant against an ex. She is able to poke fun at herself as well as o [...]

    2. Denise Duhamel's Blowout opens with her poem "How It Will End" where a husband and wife witness another couple's fight ("We can't hear what they're saying, / but it is as good as a movie") and begin projecting their own issues and grievances in a brilliant mixture of craft and confession. Her conversational style is the deceptive kind that requires much work and skill to end up sounding so casual (" `She has to just get it out of her system,' / my husband laughs, but I'm not laughing."). This po [...]

    3. Um, wow. This is a deceptively complex collection of poetry by one of my favorite poets. On the surface, it seems like simply a gossipy tell-all of a failed marriage, a collection in which Duhamel brings her ex's shortcomings to center stage for all to see. While it is all of those things (and, one must assume, a delightfully cathartic modicum of healing for the author), it is also a brutally honest look at relationships, hopes, and dark dark places. Somehow, Duhamel manages to incorporate her u [...]

    4. Denise Duhamel has written too many books of poetry to mention, but it’s her latest collection, Blowout, that sees her accrued talents tackle what feels like a novel in poems. What begins with the prediction that love will not end well for the unnamed narrator sees us following her through the inevitable divorce, through a middle section that serves as a coming to terms, of stepping back through past lovers and the lessons learned to find acceptance, while the third and final section of the bo [...]

    5. Most of the poems in this book don't live up to what I expect from Duhamel--the funky, cheeky, playful verse I've come to appreciate. I couldn't help but wonder if she was writing about the poet Nick Carbo, her ex-husband. I kept envisioning these poems were about him, which made it seem like I was a little too close to the subject matter. It felt like voyeurism. They felt a bit vengeful, like the poems had axes to grind.

    6. Duhamel's BLOWOUT is funny and tragic, smart and vulnerable, pragmatic and hopeful. In it, our speaker takes us through her divorce, her father's death, her wobbly financial state, never once losing her sharp wit, showing us how humor (and poetry) can save us from losing our minds in times of overwhelming loss. I gobbled it up and can't wait to read it again.

    7. I got this book after reading Nina's excellent review of it here: /topic/show/I am largely in agreement with her assessment of it. There is something wry about Duhamel's approach even when she is revealing painful details of her life. She not only pulls no punches with her ex but points the finger back at herself. We feel, as she deals with the unraveling of her marriage, that she is trying to figure out what happened. Because of that, and her documented efforts to manage the details of the situ [...]

    8. I've never felt comfortable with poetry, or rather, confident enough to appreciate what or how I'm "supposed to". I know a lot of it comes down to how the subject was presented in school and the tired classics selected with no consideration for the audience. However, one of the benefits of getting older is learning to see past such artificial pretensions and accepting what it is you do like about a particular artform. For example, I've never connected with vague, abstract lyrics, preferring song [...]

    9. I'm not, in general, a big fan of confessional poetry about failed marriages (which seems to be the flavor of the month - see Sharon Olds' Stag's Leap), but Duhamel's witty, conversational poems have a charm all their own, and she is sufficiently self-aware (and self-amused) a raconteur to make this an enjoyable read.Blowoutis by no means the most stirring or profound collection of poetry to come out this year - indeed, it reads more like a cross between a collection of micro-fiction and a humor [...]

    10. I was so pleased to feature poems by Denise Duhamel in Issue 1 of SR And I have to say I’m glad the person I was meeting for lunch showed up about 45 minutes late since it gave me more time to savor these poems. The work in this collection is hugely angry, raw, honest. I wonder if this collection would have ever been published by an emerging poet--I feel like an editor might not have taken a chance on it without the history of the oeuvre behind it.

    11. I didn't love this as much as some of my friends, who have excellent taste in poetry, so that this is three stars rather than four is more a question of taste and that I'm rating this for myself and not a book review. It earns three stars, and my enjoyment and attention all through reading it because of the beauty of the craftsmanship, and my awe that she can write in such and exposed and exposing way. That confessional nature is mostly why I don't love this book, but I absolutely respect the na [...]

    12. In Blowout, Denise Duhamel talks about love and betrayal, about coming to terms with being cheated on. She also talks about how Madonna's divorce helped her through hers, and fantasizes about a strip club where women keep adding layers and layers of clothing. This is a quirky collection. It feels very personal, like a set of conversations with a girlfriend, maybe over a glass of wine or flavored vodka. To read more about the book, check out my blog post.

    13. I understand this author has several other books of poetry, so i will give one of her earlier books a try. I understand she has some die-hard fans.This book read a bit more like narrative memoir, less like poetry.I did like some of the poems that were not about divorce, and when she explored bigger issues.

    14. The narrative arc of this collection made me read faster than usual, flipping eagerly from poem to poem. I rooted for the speaker, swooning as she emerged from her nasty divorce to find romance again. "Sleep Seeds" is one of the most original love poems I've read in years. But even in the bleakest parts of this collection, there's wit and charm.

    15. I've been a fan of Denise Duhamel's work for 20 years and her writing still startles and amazes me. If you've ever had a broken heart, these poems will ring deeply, uncomfortably true. And if you haven't, keep this title in mind in case you ever do.

    16. Addictive read!Some of the narrative poems felt a bit prosy, as if removing the enjambments would turn the poem into a piece of conversation.Some of Duhamel's poems were absolutely brilliant, illuminating the arc of the tenderness of love and the reality of loneliness and suffering.

    17. My kindergarten boyfriend bought me this book. It's an open wound of a failed marriage. It's a meditation on what it is to be loved and then not loved. It's a book of confessional poetry that will make you three parts sad, two parts delirious, and one part soda water.

    18. These were largely poems centered on an ugly divorce. The poems weave a dense and troubling narrative, but Duhamel adds a few outliers in there that are like little fireworks. She ends on a hopeful note and returns to love. I appreciated her meta-awareness and savvy.
