Praise for glitterbawl:
McCreadie's is a poetics of warm and bitter wisecracks, savage mimicry, kitschy religiosity - and most of all a certain hardened wistfulness. glitterbawl is a slant and brilliant thing.

Belt up! This is the respiratory news. Prepare for a cratering. glitterbawl will rip the heart from your poetry chest, show you Freud on coke, Jesus dripping on the shower curtain, Edie Sedgwick snuffed out in the tub. This poetry is artifice electric. It will burn you raw. Lizzie McCreadie knows how to look a library boy in the eye and swig.
