New Review of Scattered Clouds Raves “SC is one I return to again and again”
In a new review Kristin Kowalski Ferragut describes the ways in which Reuben Jackson's latest collection keeps her coming back for more.
Recently Kristin Kowalski Ferragut took some time to shout out five poetry books over on her blog, leaving short reviews for each. Reuben Jackson's much-talked-about Scattered Clouds made the list beside other excellent collections like Indran Amirthanayagam’s Coconuts on Mars and Courtney LeBlanc's Beautiful & Full of Monsters.
Of Scattered Clouds, Ferragut says she "Spins from enchantment to wonder to sadness, then finds [herself] laughing out loud." It is one of those books that brings her back. For her, it is a collection "[she] returns to again and again, always learn[ing] something new."

An interview with the late, great Linda Pastan
Along the indifferent corridors / of space, angels could be hiding,” Linda Pastan wrote in her poem “Muse.” ASP honors the legacy of Linda Pastan (1932–2023), a former Poet Laureate of Maryland, who passed away last week. Pastan was the author of the 2018 poetry book A Dog Runs Through It, which won the Towson University Literary Award.
