Boyfriend Mountain (out of print)

25.00

A copy of my (now out-of-print) split poetry collaboration with Tyler Brewington. Boyfriend Mountain was published by Poor Claudia as part of its Signature Series in 2014. The book is bound head-to-toe, inspired by Teen magazines and lust and nature and objectification. Ships free.

Some praise for Boyfriend Mountain:

“Reading Tyler Brewington & Kelly Schirmann’s split-book Boyfriend Mountain is like the best sleepover ever, that late-night freakout time when the real gets giddy & Truth-or-Dare demands only truth, more truth & forever truth. The two individually written halves of the book use the same title, Boyfriend Mountain, & as Brewington collects moments of attention & knotting & scattering into a disjunctive & projective wisdom, Schirmann deals & redeals the cards of her experiences, not to compete but to show how each hand can be tragic & beautiful. Both poets work in a confessionalism that owes as much to Adrienne Rich & O'Hara as it does to Catullus & entwined within one spine these two demonstrate the permeability of our experiences & relationships, how we climb & fall off these cliffs of love & fear & bodies & joy.”

— Mathias Svalina, author of The Wine-Dark Sea

"Boyfriend Mountainis a book where falling in love also means confronting your own mortality. It's a place where the joy of domesticity and the wrath of the apocalypse are part of the same thought. Where boyfriends aren't really boyfriends, but the idea of what a boyfriend might represent."

— Joshua James Amberson for the Portland Mercury
