Kari Larsen reviews my final chapbook, Kept Women, and invokes Kubrick. I'm honored--he is one of my favorite directors of all time.
"The sinister territory into which I wandered as a reviewer was not to spite the role the Playboy Mansion plays in the book: it reinforced it. Kate Durbin is an artist on par with Kubrick and she is skilled enough to create the kind of vessels that those who regard her work as readers...can fill with the full scale of their fear, repulsion, and fascination. If one is not prepared to face those feelings, they can overwhelm."
