Girl’s Guide to Giving Head is a rapturous collection of poems by “action poet” Sheri-D Wilson, in which she furnishes a sensual and ironic palace of sights, sounds, and pleasures.

It is an instructional manual for life: it is a book about going up not down… and “head” refers to the intellect; its “giving,” the act of education: teaching and learning about sex and love and ways of living.


Gordon Lightfoot, Joni Mitchell and Leonard Cohen . . . genetically tinker with these Canadians and add a chromosome of Patti Smith and a double-helix strand from Jim Carroll. . . you have Sheri-D Wilson.
– San Francisco Examiner

Fasten your seatbelts, ladies and gentlemen: here’s action poet Sheri-D Wilson dancing her way onto the page with rawness and rage. This book is a live performance.
