The poems are beautifully crafted narratives of loss, travel, and salvage. There is a damaged family at the heart of these poems, an abandoned farm, and many rooms, parks, and train cars in far places.

“Mira Rosenthal’s The Local World incorporates deeply lived experience and mystery in a fluent shape-shifting that can take you anywhere― and bring you back, changed. The poems are beautifully crafted narratives of loss, travel, and salvage. There is a damaged family at the heart of these poems, an abandoned farm, and many rooms, parks, and train cars in far places. Yet, like all really good poems, Rosenthal’s language consistently rises above its cries to wonder and beauty. What a joy to find this stunning first book to award the Stan and Tom Wick Poetry Prize.” ―Maggie Anderson, Judge

“In Mira Rosenthal’s stunning debut collection, The Local World, memory is not a static screen for nostalgia but a fierce journey into the self where danger resides. These beautifully crafted poems work through a series of brilliant tropes, a tissue pattern resting over a piece of cloth, a knife cutting from the inside, a boy shadow-boxing with himself, a sunflower ‘like the mast of ship rising tall.’ Rosenthal is both a traveler and a thinker. Her poems, elegant marvels, dramatize her personal struggle to understand and transform the past. This is a dynamic book,one to read and reread.”―Maura Stanton

“The poems in this stark collection feel as if they have arrived just after casting off emotional ballast. A burden has been carried from the familiar world, and over time and distance, that load has been dispersed. And now the poet returns, halfway between grief and transcendence, but in that dark return lies hope.”―Maurice Manning

Just great poetic imagery, use of language, music of the spoken word, with an international, global perspective. If you like well-crafted poetry, you'll like this book.

In her kaleidoscopic Wick Poetry Prize-winning collection, Mira Rosenthal invites us to come along on a journey towards self-definition. Much of the ensuing excavating ("in the dark with your eyes on sight") sends the poet out on the road to India, Nicaragua, and Poland, among others, where the luxury of being a foreigner enables her to illuminate her family's past. This idea of hovering between here and there also applies to how the carnal fabric of our lives obscures our sense of belonging to a particular place and time. Indeed, many of these poems tap into the poet's wish to domesticate her wandering body and mind, especially since a glimpse of the larger world sends the poet back to grapple with her own self, where the gasping for air leads to metaphorical self-mutilation ("I will live / by cutting myself out from the inside"). Thus, the titular local world is an amalgam of the worldly and the domestic, the internal and the external, all of which are in turn hostile and hospitable to the poet full of "desire to name the world." This is one reason why the collection juxtaposes narrative poems with long-lined meditations, while it also relies to an extent on Dorothea Lange's series of photographs, Death of a Valley, which document the destruction of California's Berryessa Valley. Without these various ingredients, Rosenthal's collection would've been yet another example of poetic navel-gazing. Instead, we are gifted with poems whose surgically-precise language uncovers how "history multiplies / your little life away," and why this poet, who's like "the grass [that] grew long enough to check the toolshed for a blade," is here to stay.
