Scar reviewed in PN Review

January 18, 2017

 

In a round-up of six chapbooks in the latest PN Review, Alison Brackenbury gives Scar an absolutely superlative review, and I'm thrilled. I can't repost the entirety here on account of copyright, so here are my favourite passages:

 

"Each observation has a whole page. This generosity, ideal for a pamphlet,

is put to impressive use by Etter."

 

"...unabashed lyricism...."

 

"The passion of Scar is political."

 

"Although strikingly well-informed, Etter makes fearless excursions into feeling...."

 

"I was impressed by his [Professor Martin Rees'] calm, scientific, wisdom. I was equally impressed that, in Scar, Carrie Etter offers both a view from space, and reflections on our troubled planet's smallest residents...."

 

Huzzah!

 

(If this tempts you to buy Scar, you can do so directly from the publisher, Shearsman, or message me on Facebook or Twitter about obtaining a signed copy directly.)
