Lucky Fish by Aimee Nezhukumatathil
Occasionally there are times for those of us who fear the thought of lineation, scansion, iambic-pentameter, and all things poetry to give the other genre of creative writing its due. With poets like Aimee Nezhukumatathil this isn’t difficult. A frequent contributor of Indiana Review and the judge for last year’s 2010 Indiana Review poetry prize, her poems in issue 31.1 are lyrical and haunting, much of what I expect from her third collection, Lucky Fish, published by Tupelo Press. I'm sure it will be a great addition to your library if you're looking to start the year off right by adding a new collection.
