In the Tree Where the Double Sex Sleeps


Rob Schlegel has a voice you’d follow into the dark woods, knowing full well it’s hard, awful, daily, plain, living truth you’re running toward. The speaker in this book is a heartbreaker of a storyteller—a synesthesiac of mixed feelings, bad news, and wordsmithery. I feel known, caught out, believed in, vulnerable, when I read this book. - Brenda Shaughnessy, judge, Iowa Poetry Prize

Precise and nuanced, this lyric journey is at once fable, field guide, confession, and thrilling meditative adventure. I know of no poet quite so gifted as Rob Schlegel at chronicling the way "impulse turns over [the] mind." - Mary Szybist, author and National Book Award winner, Incarnadine
