Carly Inghram’s The Animal Indoors selected for The Rumpus Poetry Book Club

July 6, 2021

Autumn House is excited to share that The Rumpus has chosen The Animal Indoors by Carly Inghram for their August Poetry Book Club read!

In their announcement, Senior Poetry Editor Brian Spears writes the following:

[Inghram] makes nouns and verbs dance, but it’s more than that. Sometimes her sentences veer wildly away from meaning at first glance, but then when we take in the poem as a whole, we see intricacies that make it clear Inghram is absolutely in control of her lines.

Readers who subscribe to The Rumpus Poetry Book Club by July 15 will receive an early copy of The Animal Indoors and an opportunity to join an online chat with Carly Inghram in early September.

We’re grateful to Brian Spears and The Rumpus for their thoughtful insights into and support of Inghram’s work. You can read the full announcement post explaining their selection here.
