Happy to have The Nomenclature of Small Things featured along with Ellen Kombiyil’s Histories of the Future Perfect on the Cell Press blog. Thanks to Jannell McConnell Parsons for the review! “This is a book organized around questions, a constant circling back to what can and can’t be named­ . . .The language of science and the language of grief talk to each other, become each other, in these poems. I loved this book, from the first poem right through to the last, and whether you’re looking for solace or for the landscape of 18th century science, you’ll find it here.”

The poetics of evolution, extinction, space, and time.
