Brecken Hancock

Brecken Hancock

Brecken Hancock is publishing her first book of poetry with Coach House, and she comes from the same poetic school that you'll find Jeramy Dodds (Crabwise to the Hounds), Gabe Foreman (A Complete Encyclopedia of Different Types of People) and Leigh Kotsilidis (Hypotheticals). With her book, Broom Broom, she seductively plumbs the depths of the evolution of bathing, doppelgängers, the Kraken and the minutiae of family with all its tragic misgivings. The poems in Broom Broom pervert the rational, safe parts of the world to extoll and absorb the sweep of human history.
