“What I’m Reading Now…” at Tarpaulin Sky

Click here to see an annotated reading list of five recent poetry books that I find notable. My blurbs are framed with a bit of political commentary that tries to show the social and cultural relevance of contemporary poetry during these dark and confusing times. The books are Layli Long Soldier’s Whereas (Graywolf, 2017), Divya Victor’s Kith (Fence, 2017), Robin Coste Lewis’ Voyage of the Sable Venus and Other Poems (Knopf, 2015), Solmaz Sharif’s Look (Graywolf, 2016), and Caroline Bergvall’s Drift (Nightboat, 2014).
