Hey! Here are two great reviews I somehow missed of The Warmth of the Taxidermied Animal.
Black Warrior Review, reviewed by Jenifer Park: ”The poems of The Warmth of the Taxidermied Animal are both proverbs on the indecencies of life and stories of emotional indigestion.”
“Pollari’s translation offers the reader a glimpse into the visual angular beauty of Finnish words. The original Finnish versions precede each translation and one can’t help but keep the Finnish pages in his or her peripheral as the humid and incisive mouth of each translated poem opens.”
Publishers Weekly: “Confounding and thought-provoking, shocking yet wise, this first appearance in English from a celebrated enfant terrible of verse in Finland has something Americans won’t, or shouldn’t, ignore.”
