“[These poems] tell everything exactly like it is, and they don't let us off the hook—about how we run this country, about race, about how we spend our time. They treat our private, public, and online lives with all the love and scorn they deserve.” ―Matthew Rohrer
“[Parker’s] work roves the surfaces of our American lives—gathering up material from reality TV, from the many products we consume and are shaped by, from the sound of America in our mouths, and the racket of it in our ears… Other People's Comfort Keeps Me Up at Night is hilarious and hard-hitting, and it ripples with energy, insight, and searing music." ―Tracy K. Smith
