About Creature, Creature:

"Who are the creatures echoing forth from this book's title? The square-bodied spider, black against glass? The clicking crickets and their human counterparts, kicking free of a warm night's blanket? The hollow-horned sea goats of the imagination? Yes. And more. And more. 'Every body is a den of dens,' Aronson writes. 'Each thin wall contains its own warren....' And so, this remarkable debut collection, 'we cluster and recur....an echo's echo.' But it is the eye, finally, that, open or shut, navigates these chambers of self and other—and Arnnsart's is superb."
—Linda Bierds
