Praise

Advance praise for The True Account of Myself as a Bird:

“Worlds come together in Robert Wrigley’s new collection, The True Account of Myself as a Bird, taking surprising leaps of dare and faith inside every turn, and rituals of becoming traverse borders of mind and flesh, as each word grooves. And it is a felt, lived music that runs a binding seam through human lives so natural and true.” 
—Yusef Komunyakaa, author of Night Animals

Praise for Robert Wrigley’s previous collection, Box:

“Quietly enlightening . . . Box thoughtfully considers how human beings, relationships, and the physical world are constrained by time, mortality, and other invisible forces . . . Wrigley meditates on the fragility and strength of nature; the search for transcendence and connection; the objects people keep and pass on; and how various landscapes can trap or inspire the soul.”
The Washington Post

 “These poems are masterful in how they navigate time, molding memory into new understanding.”
St. Louis Post-Dispatch
