With her typical, though poetically unusual, scientific fervor, Sarah Lindsay blends fact and faith, sci-fi and the poetic line in a wild new collection. Debt to the Bone-Eating Snotflower roams from deep sea, whale skeleton-eating worms to Iraq and back while reminding us of both the horror and awe present in the natural world. The collection opens with sharp empirical accuracy and a child-like curiosity, but even the least science-minded readers can fall in love with “Aunt Lydia.” Lindsay’s fictional character makes a late appearance in the book, presenting the reader with an every day comfort as she bumbles along, intuiting her way to from factoids to wisdom. All this to say, Lindsay’s third book takes us on another rollicking journey into a mind that sees poetry in science and science in poetry. There is no better field guide to the 21st century than this.
