“Drew Pisarra’s extraordinary sonnets provoke and involve the reader’s response to the poet’s personal experiences, energized scenarios of love, sex and irony!” – Rochelle Owens, Salt & Core

Periodic Boyfriends is what you get when you pair Grindr problems with the human need to rationalize existence: carefully wrought stanzas filled with wit, humor, loss, and longing.” – Patrick Key, Grand Little Things

“Each of these powerful, provocative, sexy sonnets is a play unto itself with two characters wrestling – coming together, falling away, then perhaps back again. Pisarra is a lover in every sense. His passion and respect for the struggle is stunningly expressed in this hilarious and dazzling book.” – Linda Manning, Perfect Love

“Drew Pisarra’s brilliant new collection reminds a reader of what those randy geniuses, the Elizabethan and 17th-century sonneteers, knew well: it’s an elegant whore of a form, bending graciously to the whims and passions of a canny writer. Pisarra is one of those. A rare one.” – Clarinda Harriss, Dirty Blue Voice
