Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Baer is a different kind of Instagram poet…She also distinguishes herself by acknowledging the self-seriousness of the genre and gently poking a hole in it.” Vogue
“The poet’s Instagram presence has become a balm for many in 2020, and now her lyrical takes on feminism, marriage, and politics come to the page IRL with this new collection.” Entertainment Weekly
