American expatriate Carrie Etter's debut collection, The Tethers, introduces a compelling new voice. By turns wry, celebratory, and pensive, the poems roam from an imaginary village to Manhattan, the southwestern U.S., London, the Czech Republic, and Etter's homeland, the Illinois prairie. With a lyric intensity born of compression and linguistic precision, The Tethers' travels are as much psychological as physical, exploring the life of the mind as it engages with delight and despair, pleasure and hardship, in an unusually mature first book.
