Your Enzymes Are Calling the Ancients
Winner of the 2015 Lexi Rudnitsky Editor's Choice Award
Published more than fifteen years after her Juniper Prize-winning first book, Fugitive Red, Karen Donovan’s second collection triangulates our most primordial questions exploring an array of biochemical, linguistic, and artistic processes.
“Donovan expertly crafts a cohesive book from so many seemingly different parts of art and nature and weaves them through the loom and perspective of human experience.”
— Danielle Susi, ALA Booklist
“Donovan’s demanding yet eminently satisfying new collection. . .limns our connectedness to a larger world. . . .Donovan is clearly a keeper. [Your Enzymes Are Calling the Ancients is] for all sophisticated poetry readers.”
—Barbara Hoffert, Library Journal
“Your Enzymes Are Calling the Ancients is all you need to see more clearly than before.”
—H. L. Hix
