New Review of INSTRUCTIONS FOR KILLING THE JACKAL

The Iowa Review raves about Erica Wright’s poetry collection INSTRUCTIONS FOR KILLING THE JACKAL: “Erica Wright’s first full-length collection is clever and sleek, a swift read with sufficient gravity. The book is a paradox, and yet so is the jackal: monogamous and loyal, yet fiercely yapping when it discovers carrion. Wright’s collection includes small towns and abandoned TB hospitals, as well as poems set in Europe, where antiquity and myth bleed into the contemporary moment.” Read the entire review here, and buy your copy of this beautiful book here.
