From starry heavens to the gates of hell, from teeth to cups: these poems will pursue the reader along a journey through a terrifying and fascinating landscape, both physical and psychological. The voice of these poems, both disembodied and all too present, acts as our guide through the world these poems inhabit, making sure we see exactly what he wishes to point out in the world of Gifted. It is a testament to the power of this language and this poetry that this world feels both utterly real and entirely conjured. Andrea Janelle Dickens
