Another Rumpus Poetry Book Club selection! This is a fascinating book. Even if you’re not blown away by the poems (and I think you should be), you have to marvel at the craft here. Muench pulls together lines from something like 180+ poets to create these fabulous poems all centered around wolves. The individual lines are terrific, but Muench puts them together in a way that makes them seem like they were written for each other rather than plucked from their original context and remixed into this one. I can’t wait to chat with her about her process and how these poems came to be.

We consider ourselves very fortunate that our work schedules make it so we don’t have to put the twins in daycare because of this very thing. They’re vaccinated, as is everyone in the house, but still, they’re young and vulnerable, and I would want to do serious damage to any parent whose kid passed along whooping cough before my kids were protected from it.
