Press & Reviews

With his remarkable first collection No Elegies, Lindsay Wilson is working that old, necessary literary alchemy: in speaking so beautifully, so honestly about the world he inhabits, he inhabits us. “You are,” Wilson writes, “what the paltry thief has left.” Though Wilson is talking to himself—listing his own betrayals, mis-rememberings, and griefs—we can’t help but take stock of our own selves, our own souls. That’s not a word I use lightly. From front to back, ‘No Elegies’ is a soulful book, suffused with death and jazz, sugar and stars, “lupus and low pines, / heat and transience.” —Joe Wilkins, author of The Mountain and the Fathers and Notes from the Journey Westward
