Review of Brandi George’s Gog

Andrea’s review of Brandi George’s Gog went online today at New Orleans Review.

Gut-wrenching and phantasmagoric, Brandi George’s first full-length poetry collection, Gog, articulates the experience of a young female growing up in an oppressive contemporary rural environment.
