“Sara Sutterlin’s I Wanted To Be The Knife picks at the bones of modern romance by exploring the disappointments of intimacy and the loneliness of dissolving relationships. Her poems are brutal, funny and full of tender, ugly details that remind us of the compromises we make with ourselves and each other when in love.” —Kristina Mahler
