Blue YodelBlue Yodel by Ansel Elkins

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


This book was the winner of the 2014 Yale Series of Younger Poets prize and marks an amazing debut of a talented poet. With an introduction by Carl Phillips, this collection is haunting, a rich study of contrast, contradiction and juxtaposition, full of characters and moments, thick with Southern Gothic tradition, that stay with the reader. Very highly recommended.

[I received an advance e-galley of this book through Netgalley. The book is due to be released March 31, 2015.]
