Larissa Shmailo
"From under the El in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, to her window seat on the Harlem Line, Shmailo is right on track with poetry that dances with love, death and desire. The proverbial urban poet, Shmailo masterfully mixes the beauty and the gritty, in New York City."
-Doug Holder, Ibbetson Street Press
"Reader beware: these are poems that lurk. Larissa evokes a stark, incisive view of the mad world where 'graffiti burns my thighs / and I run through the clotheslines that flap on the roof' and you will not escape it by closing her extraordinary book. 'I will slash my wrists,' she tells us, 'and from my wrists will come ants and tired shopkeepers,' and we believe her. Writing doesn't get much better than this."
-Jackie Sheeler, Talk Engine
"In these visceral wanderings into Larissa Shmailo's narratives, we venture through the teeming back alleys of Brooklyn on through the poet's labyrinthine youth until we reach the trepidatious poetic psyche of a woman who has lost in love but keeps on gambling with a strength to envy and behold. In Paran is not here to soothe - this is a book willing to discomfit and excite anyone who has grown too comfortable, inciting them to 'forget the right answers/consult necromancers/allow the forbidden/ignore the guilt ridden/unlearn all the learning/embrace this new burning.'"
-Amy King, I'm the Man Who Loves You
"Larissa Shmailo invites the reader to 'imagine a use with me for all that doesn't fit.' Her poems, alive with discomfort and broken pieces, teach an art of compassion without illusion."

"Larissa Shmailo's Patient Women tells the story of Nora, a gifted young woman who comes of age in New York against heavy odds.
"Larissa Shmailo's novel, Patient Women (and the title is absolutely meaningful, in so many ways), is a brutally honest wrestling match of truth-telling and sex.
"Larissa Shmailo's Patient Women explores the intersection of mind and body, posing several compelling philosophical questions to the reader: Is gender biological or do we inscribe these social categories through our use of language? Is it possible to separate one's intellect from one's physical being? To what extent is language itself tactile and embodied? As Shmailo teases out possible answers to these questions, she utilizes a variety of literary forms, which include diary entries, appendices, poems, and vignettes. Formally adventurous and engaging, Shmailo's book is as artfully written as it is thought provoking, offering us stylistic innovation that is both daring and meaningful."
"Larissa Shmailo's newest work, Patient Women, is an unflinching exploration of the lasting damage some people can inflict on their children.

When it comes to capturing the intimacy of pain, Larissa Shmailo is among the most daring poets of her generation.
"At one point in #specialcharacters, Larissa Shmailo declares: 'Mother Kali, you have made me what I am: feminine, brilliant, entirely without fear'-and the rest of the poems in this collection prove this true.
