Rapture & the Big Bam: Poems (Snowbound Chapbook Award) (Paperback)
Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
Poetry. Winner of the Snowbound Chapbook Award, selected by Lia Purpura. With funky tempos and stretched, staggering lines, Matt Donovan's new sequence interrogates the ways our daily lives teem with beauty and loss. He summons figures engrained in American culture to portray collisions of pleasure with tragedy, and to offer evidence for what creation can cost. As each day lurches us toward... / things dying, things newborn, the poet of RAPTURE & THE BIG BAM can be either a companion in mourning or a celebrant of unbeaten anticipation.
