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."
