Oceanic

Forthcoming April 2018

With inquisitive flair, Aimee Nezhukumatathil creates a thorough registry of the earth’s wonderful and terrible magic. In her fourth collection of poetry, she studies forms of love as diverse and abundant as the ocean itself. She brings to life a father penguin, a C-section scar, and the Niagara Falls with a powerful force of reverence for life and living things. With an encyclopedic range of subjects and unmatched sincerity, Oceanic speaks to each reader as a cooperative part of the earth, an extraordinary neighborhood to which we all belong.

For Oceanic,

"Nezhukumatathil’s poems contain elegant twists of a very sharp knife. She writes about the natural world and how we live in it, filling each poem, each page with a true sense of wonder." ―Roxane Gay

"Cultural strands are woven into the DNA of her strange, lush... poems. Aphorisms...from another dimension." ―The New York Times

"With unparalleled ease, she’s able to weave each intriguing detail into a nuanced, thought-provoking poem that also reads like a startling modern-day fable." ―The Poetry Foundation

"How wonderful to watch a writer who was already among the best young poets get even better!" ―Terrance Hayes
