PW starred review says Copia 'bursts with American abundance'

Copia_Bookstore

In a recent Publishers Weekly *starred* review, Erika Meitner’s newest book of poetry Copia is called “a collection that bursts with American abundance while simultaneously describing its decline."

Featuring poems inspired by the exploration and crumbling cityscapes of Detroit, Copia is an appreciable collection precisely because “[Meitner] turns these scenes inward, transforming them into a reflection of her own body." They are rendered in “rich language” and with “an eye for the texture of common objects." "Meitner has a stake in personal exploration that brings intimacy and despair to these poems, which makes them more significant than the simple observations of an outsider ogling or exoticizing poverty and decay." Click here to read the entire Publishers Weekly review of Copia. Copia is available for pre-order at the BOA Bookstore. Newly printed copies are now available from BOA and will ship immediately. Get your hands on it early!
