Debut full-length poetry collection from widely published US author.
Adroit and affective, David Olsen’s poetry explores liminal states and identity in a confident, graceful voice. His lucid style and keen observation exhibits depth and precision. Images are delicate and metaphors are controlled; resonant with humanity. There is poignancy here, but never sentimentality; always maintaining the tension of the poetic form. Insightful, affectionate, and always accessible, this is an accomplished, mature and long awaited full-length debut.
