Harvey, whose debut collection of poems was praised by The New Yorker as "intensely visual, mournfully comic, and syntactically
inventive," offers an equally stunning second collection in Sad Little Breathing Machine. Throughout this book, Harvey explores the strange and intricate mechanics of human systems—of the body, of thought, of language itself. Her poems are themselves engines—devices that, like poetry itself, propel both our comprehension and our misunderstanding. This is a poetry concerning our sense of wonder in all its guises. "If you're lucky," Harvey writes, "after a number of / revolutions, you'll / feel something catch."
