The powerful debut from author and poet M.W. Jaeggle.

Like the coastal zone where high tides deposit organic materials and other debris, M.W. Jaeggle’s Wrack Line traces loss, guilt, and subsequent loneliness, while exploring regenerative possibilities of language, memory, and land, taking readers on a journey that will leave them like “A black horse...winded at the gate” of some new grace.


“Jaeggle’s precise, tender, often surprising evocations of the natural world allow me to feel his earth as something seen, renewed and renewable. The joys of perceiving and making words work carry me with the lightest touch toward pleasure and human connection, where awareness trumps sorrow and angst. The details and images, warm and charming, contribute much to the book’s wisdom.” —David Zieroth, author of watching for life

"From memory, from brushstroke, from tidal aftermath, M.W. Jaeggle’s poems contain profound resonances." —Laurie D. Graham, author of Fast Commute
