About this title


Poetry. "SILKIE, with its historical detail and rich sense of place, beautiful language, startling psychological acuity, is a triumph...a meditation on passion and heartbreak that enthralls and compels with its myth of "the beastly human"--Reginald Gibbons. "Stunning, brave, and original, the poems are full of the sensuality of the body and the longing of the soul, deftly wrought to reveal a world both real and transcendent"--Jesse Lee Kercheval. "Cusac recounts the story of the Silkie, seals who transform into human beings...This is big poetry. Not shimmery self-consciousness. Not ineffable shrines to the quotidian. This poetry is as fundamental as rocks. It shocks with its primordial qualities and thrills with its art"--Patrick Lawler.
