Editorial Reviews


“Jackson Burgess is the most dazzling, urgently urban and unfailingly inventive young chronicler of lost highways and avenues of broken dreams since the early poems of Denis Johnson and the ballads of Tom Waits.” –David St. John, Chancellor of the Academy of American Poets

Atrophy is simply shattering―in its apocalyptic intensity, its relentless drive, its urgent music, its desperate tenderness.” –Cecilia Woloch, author of Carpathia

Atrophy pulses with love, vodka, and the despair of things lost and things found…I want to gift Atrophy to every human I’ve ever met.” –Ruth Madievsky, author of Emergency Brake
