Product Details


“Quinn’s collection covers remarkable ground . . . throughout, poets interrogate the use of their work and the limits of the imagination when reality presses in.” —Clare Bucknell, The New Yorker
“Timely . . . From fierce truths to dark humor, readers can share in the experience of being delighted and illuminated through this essential, urgent poetry anthology that addresses the fear, grief, and hope felt in these times.” Poets & Writers

“Together in a Sudden Strangeness offers beautiful poems about every fact of life that’s changed in this pandemic: Grief, fear, hope, loneliness, awe, bravery, and everything in between.” —Book Riot
“This collection appears at the exact moment when the nuanced and profound nourishment it offers may be needed most. . . Both cathartic and challenging, Together in a Sudden Strangeness provides an early glimpse into how literary writers will discover new form and language to convey the unfolding perils of this unprecedented time.” —Emily Choate, Chapter 16
“This collection of poems helps to reiterate our vulnerability and capacity of resilience and finding beauty and hope in the world around us in the direst circumstances. The day will come when reading these words again will remind us how it was living through this surreal period and that together we have survived it.” —Marco De Ambrogi, The Lancet
“A welcome collection of creative healing.” —Andrew Jarvis, New York Journal of Books
