Thanks to poet Sean Thomas Dougherty, who posted the following "micro review" of USA-1000:
Here is a first book of poems full of pop culture references, dark, funny, sometimes twisted. Musical and colloquial, it pivots us 360 degrees in the consumerist world in which we survive. Reminds me of the work of Denise Duhamel and Campbell McGrath's Florida, but this is something wholly/holy its own. By Sass Brown. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Thank you to the wonderful soul (or souls) who nominated Sass for a Pushcart Prize, an American literary prize that honors the best “literary whatnot" published in the small presses over the previous year! Results will be announced in May, and winners will be published in a forthcoming anthology.
