“Stephanie Lenox’s The Heart That Lies Outside the Body mines the Guinness World Records to take metaphor to a sublime extreme. Her chapbook, peopled with its ‘federation of freaks’ is euphoric, generous, gracefully obsessive. There is intense personal depth in all of these poems, which are intimate, skillful, shimmering with complexity and awe.”—Denise Duhamel
