Without Protection

In poems rich with sensuality and discord, Mukomolova explores her complex identity―Russian, Jewish, refugee, New Yorker, lesbian― through the Russian tale of Vasilyssa, a young girl left to fend for herself against the witch Baba Yaga.

Without Protection Reviews

  • Levis Keltner

    What Cynthia Cruz said: a world of terror and beauty; the world as it is.

    Also: all the modes, all the genres; a full register of being; a world and a life.

    And: Mukomolova’s singing is unmistakeable.

  • Alina

    If these poems had a scent, it would be the dirty-salty air of Brighton Beach, cunt sweat, & Ck One perfume. You'll weep, then write a dirty & tender email to the ex-lover you miss most.

  • Jan Stinchcomb

    A special kind of enchantment. Poems of immigration, queer culture, and sexuality, with constant reference to the Russian fairy tales. Like a secret, sensual trip to Brighton Beach.

  • Sam

    A joy to read. Really pretty, I loved the switching of stories and styles.

  • Robert Terrill

    A talented poet with a mythic filter writes about her life with astounding results.
