Wonderful! Kevin Killian Wins Wonder Book Prize

By Harriet Staff

As if readers of fiction and poetry didn’t have enough reasons to deem Kevin Killian’s writing wonderful: the editors of Wonder, Andrew Durbin and Ben Fama, announced today that Killian’s manuscript, Tweaky Village, has been selected by MacGregor Card as winner of the first annual Wonder Book Prize. The editors of Wonder made the announcement via Facebook; look out for Killian’s new work at AWP next year. In the meantime, here’s one from the forthcoming Tweaky Village:

“Five Year Plan”:

To become obscure
among human beings,

but clearer
in all relations,

to become the night,
thickening to mist

over the water
vanishing

with first light
of morning.
