blud

by Rachel McKibbens

McKibbens's blud is a collection of dark, rhythmic poems interested in the ways in which inherited things—bloodlines, mental illnesses, trauma—affect their inheritors. Reveling in form and sound, McKibbens's writing takes back control, undaunted by the idea of sinking its teeth into the ugliest moments of life, while still believing—and looking for—the good underneath all the bruising.


Staff Reviews

I dare you to this latest book from McKibbens and not find all the Plath references. Read Ariel, then read this. Then find me so we can commiserate.
