Indies Introduce


  • Brute: Poems, Emily Skaja
    Graywolf Press, 9781555978358, April 2, 2019 (Fiction)


    “How can the end of a relationship feel like anything but a gaping wound? Brute will show you how. Visceral, angry, and honest, Brute is a journey to the heart of loss and back out stronger and fiercer. Skaja’s poems will slice you open to your very soul and then stitch you back together, and you will thank her for it.”

    Erin Ball, Third Place Books (Lake Forest Park, WA)


    “This ferocious collection of poems deals with relationships, sexuality, and, yes, brutality. Skaja’s searing imagery will stay with the reader long after the book is put down. Her poems are a cautionary tale to anyone who wades into the treacherous waters of human connection.”

    Grace Harper, Mac’s Backs (Cleveland, OH)
