In this electrifying and raw debut anthology, Maggie Nelson unpicks the everyday with the quick alchemy and precision of her later modern classics The Argonauts and Bluets. The poems of Shiner experiment with a variety of styles—syllabic verse, sonnets, macaronic translation, Zen poems, walking poems—to express love, bewilderment, grief, and beauty. This book, Nelson's first, heralded the arrival of a fully formed, virtuoso voice.
Maggie Nelson is a poet, critic, and award-winning author of The Argonauts, Bluets, The Art of Cruelty, Jane: A Murder and The Red Parts. She lives in Los Angeles, California.

"Shiner is totally cool. Maggie Nelson delivers the goods with fiendish delight.”
— Eileen Myles

“Nelson’s poems move fast, think on their feet, hit and run with equal parts of humor; glamor and horror. In every way, she is a thoroughly original voice for our time.”
— Elaine Equi

“Nelson is one of the most electrifying writers at work in America today, among the sharpest and most supple thinkers of her generation.”
— Olivia Laing
