Let's just get this out of the way right now: these are some
good poems. Like, really, really good poems. If you
appreciate good poetry and are not prudish about subject
matter, you should read this collection. Period. If you take
nothing else away from this review, take away that. The
pieces in Love’s Autobiography: The Ends of Love are
playful, erotic, insightful, and above all, smart.
