Animal Unfit, by Megan Nichols (Belle Point Chaps #4)

The wildness of the Arkansas Ozarks comes vividly to life in Animal Unfit. Through Megan Nichols’s eyes, motherhood becomes a song tinged with grief. At the same time, a sense of home emerges through kind neighbors, natural landscapes, and the hope that remains hidden in family—even if our loved ones leave us behind.

Sample Poems: "My child is young and our loved ones are alive" and "Incipient Decline"

Megan Nichols lives in the Arkansas Ozarks. Her poems have appeared or are forthcoming in Iron Horse Literary ReviewThe Threepenny Review, Frontier Poetry and elsewhere. She was a finalist for Write Bloody’s 2021 Jack McCarthy Book Prize, named a Spring 2022 Brooklyn Poets Fellow, and serves as a poetry reader for Variant Literature and River Mouth Review.
