Editorial Reviews

Review

“In this brilliant debut, clarity is ushered through form, strutting its way into life, into our lives.” (Claudia Rankine)

“The sorceress Sealey...serves up an impossible cento that punches the daylight from your chest. Nothing ordinary here. But beast? Yeah, that’s it. This thing has teeth.” (Patricia Smith)

“A stunning cento, an erasure, and a defense serve, together, as ars poetica for Nicole Sealey’s remarkable debut collection.” (Natasha Trethewey)
