Berlingske: “Cindy Lynn Brown administers indignation with a large portion of humor and irony and lots of energy and imagination in her language.”

Fyens Stiftstidende: “Glorious and generously filled out with fantastic word-roars and twists”.

litteratursiden: “Cindy Lynn Browns poems do not make themselves known as ultimate beauties, but like abundantly growing quirks of grotesque coincidences, innovative imagery and a stubborn insisting determination never to be locked as absolute statements. When everything has been said, there is always more to say. The rebellion against the established and the absolute is reflected in the collections constant discussion with identity and the identity creating markers.”

Sneppenet: “It has been said of the generation who grew up in the 70s that they are the most indolent and fainthearted, for a long time. They are grown up now and what kind of lives do they lead since they don’t start revolutions or wars? They turn over steaks on the Weber, live beautifully, are knowledgeable and have morality. Adult life after the year 2000 is characterized by containing quite a lot of everyday stations both figuratively and literally speaking. It is these life elements and the navigation between them Cindy Lynn Browns book is about.

(…) as a whole these words form an adequate and recognizable image of contemporary society. The language does not feel above words like residential street or Facebook, but performs with stylistic dignity, because it avoids collapsing into condemnation or eulogy. The finding functions poetically.”

Lektørudtalelse: “Swaying and evocative – it is like going on an adventure in magazines. The style reminds me of Inger Christensen.”
