Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis
"Shanna Compton captures the weird and dazzling collision between the suffering and the awe of contemporary existence. At once disturbing and triumphant, the poems in Brink work together to create an honest, unexpected, and fascinating lyrical exhibition of the complicated human heart." --Ada Limón

"Shanna Compton is one of those poets I will always read, will always eagerly anticipate the next brilliant collection! Brink is a word we gather on top of. Not every poet can promise this word, but it's most fitting here." --CAConrad

In her third collection, Shanna Compton offers poems for our brink times: As Texas burns, the Midwest drowns. As one planet explodes, Curiosity captures stunning panoramas of Mars. As one couple argues, another sinks into the silent depths of an ocean trench. The poems in Brink explore the slippage between our lives and the sensation of living inside a miniseries, insistently assuring us we're still solidly here, "amidst all this news."
