About the author of this award-winning collection, final judge Miller Williams commented: "Meredith Carson writes poems so well-controlled in tone that the language of conversation takes on an elegance rarely found in contemporary poetry, but emphatically contemporary." In this, her first collection of poetry, Meredith Carson combines form and feeling, human nature and animal instinct, a scientist's eye and a poet's heart to create poetry of detail and delight. From her ghost crabs, which "stand on four fixed wickets" to the mangrove sprouts "floating, wobbling vertically like pencils in the sea," she continually compels the reader to look more closely for the rewards and treasures of nature that she herself has found.
