Fishbone

Fishbone was the winner of the Snail’s Pace Press Chapbook Prize.

“From pickpockets to peacocks, elephant rides to electrocuted oysters, miracle fruit to the Incrdible Hulk, Aime Nezukumatathil teases the uncommon out of the commonplace,the miraculous out of the mundane. With a sensory zest that tickles both mind and tongue, she invokes her heritage in inimitable poems that go straight for the heart. Her gift for gloriously exact detail, her vulnerability, and her humor make Fishbone an impressive and eclectic debut.” – Ron Wallace
