“Radical, modernist, fiery, glamorous, feminist— adjectives and categories can only gesture toward the enduringly significant life and works of the poet Lola Ridge, whose story has been gracefully told, with her poems lucidly understood, by Terese Svoboda.”
“We need more books like this one.”
“In Anything That Burns You, Terese Svoboda entertainingly parses the enigmatic life and powerful writing of Lola Ridge.”
“No one who cares about American culture will want to miss this book.”
“In this glorious and important book, Svoboda rehabilitates Ridge from the crime of being born a woman.”
The first full-length biography of Lola Ridge, a trailblazer for women, poetry, and human rights far ahead of her time.
