At once disturbing and triumphant, the poems in Brink work together to create an honest, unexpected, and fascinating lyrical exhibition of the complicated human heart." -Ada Limon "Shanna Compton is one of those poets I will always read, will always eagerly anticipate the next brilliant collection Brink is a word we gather on top of.

The poems in Brink explore the slippage between our lives and the sensation of living inside a miniseries, insistently assuring us we're still solidly here, "amidst all this news.
