Poetry. As one of the most exciting new voices in American poetry, Zachary Schomburg's previous books have enthralled thousands of readers with surreal landscapes populated by gorillas in people clothes, jaguars, plagues of hummingbirds, and even Abraham Lincoln. His poems have inspired art installations, shadow puppetry, rock albums, and string quartets. In FJORDS , Schomburg inhabits the icy landscape, walking among all his little deaths as he explores the narrow inlets between the transcendent and the mundane. These are poems to be read by torchlight or with no light at all. As Schomburg explains, There is so much blood in the trees. It will be easy to fall in love like this.

"Zachary Schomburg may be one of the sincerest surrealists around.... These are wildly imagined poems to fall in love with and reread."—Publishers Weekly

"Schomburg is possibly the man who will save poetry for all of those readers who are about to give up on the genre."—The Huffington Post
