"In his haunting debut collection, Adam Day weaves a detailed surrealistic landscape ruled by harsh seasons and harsher happenings. Often rendered in imagistic micro-vignettes and character studies, these poems arrive both as urgent cautionary dispatches from a parallel world and reminders of the brutal and too-familiar events and absurdities of our own. . . . What seems at first glance to be a view into a wholly other realm steadily becomes a shockingly timely, searing meditation on human nature as it manifests itself in our daily lives and public history."
