Publisher Marketing: Gerald Lampert Memorial Award finalist Mikko Harvey’s second collection takes readers into a kaleidoscopic world that is and is not the world we know.
A family of microscopic women burrows into the prefrontal cortex; a bear steps out of the forest and offers a ginger tincture; humans do their best to love other humans; the sea gives you a new name. In Mikko Harvey’s hands, the surreal is simultaneously supple, vibrant, and an evelatory force. Through uncanny vignettes, absurdist narratives, animistic parables, associative lyrics, and experimental gambits that resist categorization, Harvey explores and confronts the ways in which we are all curiously, delightfully, heartbreakingly entangled: with each other, with the environment we inhabit, and with the psychological environments that inhabit us.
