Reviews

“With Wordsworthian ease and Conner family grit, Aaron Giovannone’s Loneliness Machine is a most welcome debut. Funny, heartfelt, edging itself where social media and poetry meet, a voice emerges that is tender, aware, and always attuned to the craft.”—David McGimspey, author of Sitcom and Li’l Bastard
