Incorrect Merciful Impulses
Coppper Canyon Press, January 2015
Purchase: Powell's | Amazon

“A striking debut that delights with its sculpted lines, surprising insights, and clear-sighted observations about communication and isolation.”
     —Washington Post

“Sensuously immediate but never populist, au courant but never tied to headlines, and trailing—with fearful eagerness—the spirit of Plath, Rankine’s first full-length gathering sounds as if she knew that people were listening, and it has no trouble holding listeners fast.”
     —Stephen Burt, American Poets

“In the hands of a fine poet like Camille Rankine, in Slow Dance with Trip Wire, the dance is oh so human, the music hard-won and bittersweet, the truths she uncovers about herself and us, graceful.
