First chapbook review!

Back in November I received my first review for my upcoming chapbook Electric Deserts! from ANMLY I’ve been terrible at sharing and updating on my blog but hopefully the next couple postings will suffice.

“There’s an aesthetic: write the poem white people want you to write or write the poems academics want you to write. Then, there’s Amber McCrary’s chapbook, Electric Deserts, stepping away from both sets of expectations. Here is this defiant othering, crisp lines written for Native eyes. Poems reaching off the page, accessible to relatives.”
