Synopses & Reviews
Poetry. Winner of the 2012 Dorothy Brunsman Poetry Prize. "In The Accidentalist, you'll find a lover as slide projector, a brain 'split / like a horse's hoof,' 'a music box pricked by sunset's light,' and a writer who tracks oddity and beauty, finding one inside the other. Wheeler's precise and complexly grateful voice manages to make reality refreshingly wobbly." — Matthea Harvey
"These poems risk being wrong about everything as a way to get everything right." — Matt Hart
