New Book by Fulbright Alumna Tara Skurtu

Tara Skurtu’s poetry book, The Amoeba Game, was just released by Eyewear Publishing. The official launch is on October 11, at the London Review Bookshop, in Bloomsbury.

More about Tara’s collection of poems in Robert Pinsky’s words, a poet, essayist, translator, teacher, and 3-time Poet Laureate: "The earned, liberated laughter of survival and foreboding; a high-voltage mind thinking in images; candid grief; an irreverence that rises above convention to a true, untamed intuition of the sacred; love, with all its penalties and joys. With these qualities, the engaging poems of Tara Skurtu’s The Amoeba Game offer a vision of our familiar world transformed by possibility. The title poem is a compact, funny parable of imagination engaging the unknown, and happy to encounter the unknowable." --Robert Pinsky
