In a book rich with formal variety and lyric intensity, Carr takes up economic inequality, gendered violence, losses both personal and national, and the crisis of the body within all of these forces. Real Life: An Installation is a terrifying book, but one that keeps us close as it moves through the disruptions and eruptions of the real.
Review Quotes
Library Journal's Best Fall Poetry Titles
"Art installations dramatically enfold us, conveying a heightened sense of our world, but what if life itself were viewed as one large installation? . . . All of this yields, as one poem is titled, 'The Lived Experience of Social Power'—and in fact experience in general. Reading this book feels like living and breathing the life we live and breathe, and Carr manages to make it all compulsively readable. VERDICT: Sharp social and political observation from a poet who does it right."
