Reviews

"[Wild is the Wind is] as haunting and contemplative as the torch song for which the collection is named . . . [Phillips] startles readers afresh with his talent for transcendent metaphor leavened by rueful humor . . . Skillfully balancing philosophical discourse and linguistic pleasure, Phillips's much-admired capacity for nimble syntax unfurls like a sail, 'each time, more surely.'" --Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Trying to write about this collection is a completely hopeless exercise . . . Everything I want to say about it sounds at least a little unhinged, as in: having read it, I can't imagine not having read it; a copy of it never lasts long with me before I give it away to someone I love; it offers moments of clarity that I've never found anywhere else. So many of us have a book for which this is the case, and often--unsurprisingly often--this book was written by Carl Phillips."--Corinne Segal, Lit Hub
