Here is what is being said about the collection:
"Starvation--emotional, spiritual, sexual—how we survive it, how we replenish ourselves and others is at the core of Karen Terrey’s Bite and Blood. The gorgeous tension in these poems is in a “secret cellular awareness” that comes from Terrey’s fearless walks in the literal and metaphoric wilds: woods, wide fields, marshes. Like a lone traveler assembling shelter out of what can be found on a forest floor, Terrey places lines like old timber or found stone to erect poems made of human and animal soul. In her title poem, her speaker faces a deer on the path and meditates on his “slow hunger”, a hunger not unlike our own and so necessary our lives depend upon it. A beautiful collection."
--Laura McCullough, author of Rigger Death & Hoist Another and Panic (winner Kenerith Gensler Award)
