2012 National Book Award Finalist in Poetry


Crisply comic,disarmingly frank, and aurally bold ”
Publishers Weekly

This collection by African American poet Tim Seibles explores a range of poetic form, including lyric, ode, narrative, and mystical. Like a "fast animal," the poet's voice can swiftly change direction and tone as he crisscrosses between present and past.

Built like one single sustained song, Fast Animal is alive with music, ardor, and wit that flow in utterances that are uniquely [Seibles'] and his alone." Laure-Anne Bosselaar, author of The Hour Between

From "Delores Jepps"

It seems insane now, but
she’d be standing soaked
in schoolday morning light,
her loose-leaf notebook,
flickering at the bus stop,
and we almost trembled

at the thought of her mouth
filled for a moment with both
of our short names. I don’t know
what we saw when we saw
her face, but at fifteen there’s
so much left to believe in

Tim Seibles, who teaches at Old Dominion University, is the author of six previous books, including Body Moves and Hurdy-Gurdy. His poetry has been featured in Best American Poetry 2010. Seibles has been the recipient of an NEA grant for poetry and Open Voice award.

Tim Seibles chronicles his evolution from innocence to adulthood in Fast Animal...[E]ach experience is keenly observed and shapes his growing sense of identity and an exquisite awareness of the things all humans share.”
—Elizabeth Lund, The Washington Post
