Spuyten Duyvil Announces the Publication of Wildlife by Poet Miranda Beeson

S For Story/10602267
NEW YORK - s4story -- Spuyten Duyvil announces October 15th as the official publication date of Wildlife by poet Miranda Beeson.

In Wildlife, Miranda Beeson sinks her observational teeth into the living world—shape-shifting, role-playing, tracking the behavior of creatures—both homo sapiens and other species who inhabit our planet. What is our social contract with one another? With the planet we live on? Who will appropriate who or what? In Wildlife, beasts of all kinds (radioactive and more) stalk the "civilized" world.

"Beeson's voice is as effortless as old money and as keen as a fish knife. Reader, you'll be gutted, in the best possible way," says Julie Sheehan, author of Bar Book and Orient Point. "Her sonnets are gorgeous, little machines full of life and its contradictions; they are some of the finest sonnets anywhere," writes M.G. Stephens, author of King Ezra and The Brooklyn Book of the Dead. "Even if you've never met Beeson (which is tragic), you can hear her voice radiate off the page in this stunning collection of poems," quips Matt Coonan, author of Toy Gun.
