Overview

Nothing slips by Brecken Hancock’s deft ear as she seductively plumbs the depths of the evolution of bathing, doppelgängers, the Kraken and the minutiae of family with all its tragic misgivings. The poems in Broom Broom pervert the rational, safe parts of the world to extoll and absorb the sweep of human history.

Reviews

'[Broom Broom] adds to and ultimately transcends the subgenre [the poetry of grief], making something new and strange that also announces the emergence of an exciting young poet at the beginning of a significant body of work. ' - Pank Magazine

'[T]he second read of this excellently-crafted collection is even more rewarding than the first. ' - The Los Angeles Review
