Jackie Wang traverses the wild terrain of her dreams in her debut collection of poetry, The Sunflower Cast a Spell to Save Us From the Void. Part ethereal dream diary, part punk-rock-flavored social commentary and all completely sensual, Wang’s collection, a National Book Award finalist, upends convention and dares to change our reality through sheer fantasy. Flanked by hallucinatory drawings by Kalan Sherrard, Wang’s experiments with form, style and structure will change the way you see your dreams—and poetry—forever.
