The Wet Collection: A Field Guide to Iridescence and Memory - Joni Tevis

The Wet Collection (Milkweed, $16), by Joni Tevis, is a sprawling, wandering, tale through American places—Appalachia, Ohio farmland, Eastern Oregon’s high desert, the Gulf Coast—and through histories as far ranging as those of ancient Egypt and Central Oregon’s Jefferson County, circa 1911. Tevis takes it all and combines it in remarkable essays offering fragments of poetic lyricism imbued with a naturalist’s precision; this writer has a curiosity for all things, living and dead. The true beauty of this collection is Tevis’s ability to present a diverse selection of thoughts, stories, and facts within a complementary exploration of what it is to be (past, present, and future). She’s come up with a dazzling and mind-spinning collection.
