So Rarely in Our Skins

Finalist for the Atlantic Poetry Prize

About the Book
What happens when Icarus joins the circus, Orestes has trouble with a credit application, and Frankenstein’s monster hires a private investigator? In So Rarely in Our Skins, classical and pop culture collide as Robert Moore turns his witty and ironic eye on everything from art history and fairy tales to gender relations and the true meaning of wristwatches.

“The poems in So Rarely in Our Skins, many of which are made memorable by a dry wit, a near perfect ear, and a resourceful vocabulary—all point to an abundantly gifted poet and a fine first book.”
—Carmine Starnino
