Morbid Curiosities $7
45 pages. 2014, NDR.
Winner of the 2013-14 NDR Chapbook Contest judged by Mark Yakich, Rebecca Meacham’s genre-splitting Morbid Curiosities is an interrogation of art that delves deep into moments of tragedy. Of it Yakich said, “Although [Morbid Curiosities] is bookended by the 19th and 21st Centuries, the collection exhibits the best of 20th Century playfulness in form—beginning in Stein-like exuberance for the stuff of language and finishing in Barthleme-like wonder amid banality. What I glean most of all here is that while many of us live lives of intentional or unintentional irony, it is death that best ‘enfold[s] the layers of irony’ we’ve lived.”
