A Child of Storm by Michael J. Wilson

wilsonA Child of Storm by Michael J. Wilson, graduate, MFA in Creative Writing program at The New School.

Stalking Horse Press, 2016

From the publisher: Like Whitman listening to Kraftwerk, Michael J. Wilson’s A Child of Storm fuses the incandescent pulse of the forest with vivid projections of the life of Nikola Tesla. These currents turn together, a luminous aurora of sap, electricity, biography, and ecology in this profound collection of poems. Filaments of pine, electric chairs, fruit, and Faraday cages, A Child of Storm is a new transcendentalist triumph.
