There’s not much better than discovering a new writer you love.
I immediately fell in love when I read 1996, Sara Peters’ debut poetry collection. Peters’ collection is about obsessions, in all their varying forms, ranging from sex, cruelty, childhood, and religion. But the magic here is in her ability to surprise the reader’s expectations about these subjects–Peters does not shy away from darkness, instead examining, turning it over in her capable hands. The result is haunting.
This is Peters’ debut, and I look forward to reading more of her work for years to come.
