Sarah Jackson explores the edges of writing in this uncanny book of touch. Tender, haunting, and yet beautifully poised, the poems in Pelt get right under your skin. Composed in four parts, the collection takes you on an unsettling journey between infancy and adulthood. Veering from birds to blindness, from hides to hiding, "Pelt" uncovers the unfamiliar in the everyday. "Pelt" is written in the dark. It asks to be read through your fingertips. Striking and elegant, subtle and yet full of desire, this is a brilliant debut.
