“Your Strange Fortune” published by Chloe Clark

CATEGORIES: Department News

Chloe Clark’s debut book of poetry, “Your Strange Fortune” has been published by VA Press.  From the publisher “Chloe N. Clark’s Your Strange Fortune is our good fortune. This debut volume of rare sympathy and imagination leaps easily from myths to monsters, ghosts to zombies, fairy tales to the Apocalypse that, for this poet and so many today, is “just/the fact of life.”   Like the poet’s “clockwork nightingale” whose song is both dystopian and beautiful, Chloe Clark’s voice rises above the usual din to bring us a debut volume that is rich with unsettling questions but always unflinchingly alive.”
