The Sunflower Cast a Spell to Save Us From the Void, by Jackie Wang

Staff Pick

Wang’s first collection of poetry features a surreal post-apocalyptic dreamscape that encompasses worlds wielding sunflowers and stubborn, unrelenting hope. This transgressive and radical work urges us to counter the  cataclysmic with imagined realms that push back against the forces of darkness, even if we seem to have accepted them as our new normal. Insisting on communities built of care and solidarity, Wang repudiates the bleak, individualistic crises we've doomed ourselves to, showing that with dreams we can find endless possibilites, breathe freely, and, like sunflowers,grow strong by reaching toward the light.
