Book Review: Erin Emily Ann Vance’s Advice for Taxidermists and Amateur Beekeepers

Advice for Taxidermists and Amateur Beekeepers

“As with much of the author’s haunting poetry, this book reaches into the territory of fairy tales and the Gothic, but it simultaneously (and predominantly) grounds itself in contemporary realism. Advice for Taxidermists and Amateur Beekeepers demonstrates this kind of dual function in tonal terms, too: while it strays into morbid territory, it is punctuated throughout by surprising levity and humour.”
