About this title

Synopsis:

Bird Skin Coat is brimming with startling moments of beauty found within a rusty and decayed landscape. With wild lyrical images of ascent and descent—doves and dives, sparrows and slugs, attics and cellars—this collection reflects Sorby’s keen eye for blending images. As they shuttle between the Upper Midwest and the Pacific Northwest, these poems explore how the radical instability of the world is also the source of its energy.  Honorable Mention, Posner Book-Length Poetry Award, Council for Wisconsin Writers  Winner, Best Book of Poetry, Midwest Book Awards Winner, Lorine Niedecker Poetry Award, Council for Wisconsin Writers

About the Author:
