PRAISE FOR
SO LONG, AND THANKS FOR ALL THE WATERPROOF MASCARA.

“Lilith Mae McFarlin’s So Long, and Thank You for All the Waterproof Mascara is a tour de force exploration of gender and sexuality—the artifice, the performative, and the genuine. These poems fearlessly punch back at our cruel political and cultural moment. In bold gestures, crisp imagery, and laugh-out-loud reversals that might make a reader’s mascara run, McFarlin invites us into her ‘penthouse level of unapologetic queerness.’”

- Denise Duhamel, author of Blowout

“I met Lilith Mae McFarlin about a half a dozen years ago at the Live From the Back Room Reading series. She had the quiet, almost withdrawn attitude that might have led you to believe she was shy. Nothing could have been farther from the truth. She is both funny and angry, a sort of Schrödinger’s punk rock poet, and her poetry reflects the complexity of her experience. Her sense of humor might best be understood if I told you about the Bukowski reading I hosted where she read instead Spice Girl lyrics. Her depth obvious in poems like 'I Don’t Have a Problem,' a poem that goes on to say ‘with straight people as long as they’re not flamboyant.’ Ironic, thought provoking poetry in a Twitter world, who’d have thought. 'I Wanna Punch the World in the Dick' is as outlaw as a rent by the week trailer with a trash can full of cold medicine boxes out back. Full of vanity, I think I could have written it myself. Good poetry has a way of doing that to a person. Flipping expectations on their head, 'Batman Comes on Television' touched me, moved me deeply in a way that would pale in the brevity called for, you must read it. It turned my heart inside out. I could not help but be moved by meeting and hearing Lilith Mae McFarlin share her words and work. More so, as I held her written words in my hands. She does what the greatest poets do, she invites us in, for a moment we share hearts and thoughts. This is a book that should be bought and read again and again.”

- Justin Booth, author of The Luckiest Man
