Allison Titus’s newest poetry collection, The True Book of Animal Homes, is obsessed with animal and human alike, and how each one of us makes our home in the stations we holdâ€â€from the wilds of southern brambles to a desk in an office cubicle. This book ponders the question: how much wildness are we allowed in this life, and how do we claim that wildness? The poems of The True Book of Animal Homes leap and scurry after the truth on all fours, devouring us with sharp language and brave new forms.
