Overview

Sarah Sala's collection is full of sly and beautiful poems. Startling and exploratory, her voice is completely unique, and her vision blazes in every line. This is important new poetry by a poet of genuine talent. -Laura Kasischke THE GHOST ASSEMBLY LINE does a lot in just a few poems. I love how present the past is in this collection - family history, a city's history, and the small painful moments from a life are celebrated alongside quotidian concerns, or a lover's body. Intimate and public spaces fill this collection and the effect is dizzying in the best way. It reminds us that poems are the place where everything happens at once. -Matthew Rohrer Sarah Sala's work goes beyond our everyday use of a word like catharsis to its older definition, a purgation. It is urgent, and yet, in the many faces of violation here, there is a voice that wants to make us safe, and it does this by presenting America with its own broken surface. These poems burst from the seed of Yeats's terrible beauty. They brandish themselves on blank space, praise what negation does to desire, and shiver gorgeously with rare kindness. In their gleam, we see splendor, outrage, and "a torrential downpour into nothingness. -Natalie Eilbert
