University of Akron, 2022


Strange country, and so ordinary about its strangeness—Free Clean Fill Dirt really makes you wonder if everything is destined on our planet for an early, earthly, grave. What I especially love about Caryl Pagel's latest book is that she asks an important question: "Is it / simpler to accept such fate when one / is what one / calls a woman?" Hinting that women across history are used to neglect and disappointment from the personal, cultural, and to the global, I consider if this is a strength when responding to ecological disaster. In the four stages of grief, this is a book grappling with acceptance and what comes after that. NIKKI WALLSCHLAEGER
