Evan's debut poetry collection skirts a diverse geography, threaded by a voice that is sensorially-awake, curious, and humane. Fate & Knives investigates food, writing, personal history and barely-known places with a disarming approach to language and subject. What surfaces is a collection full of unlikely observational detail and delicate ambiguity.
