With Porcupine


Poetry Chapbook

“A porcupine must dwell in every human head and heart for, coming to know this porcupine, I came to better know myself. The tender beauty Jacob Oet has wrought in With Porcupine could catch you up and open you wide.”

—Camille Dungy, author of Smith Blue

“There are a lot of young writers with talent but Jacob Oet has a strange and mature vision as well, which dwells in a convergence of clarity and swerve, comedy and disquiet, privacy and sociability, tenderness and something just a touch hard. With Porcupine is no mere concept album, though it has got a rather original driving concept. Combining the authentic feel of seeming autobiographical narrative with surrealistic, whimsical, sometimes lyric, sometimes anti-lyric adventure, this debut is a curiosity and a delight.”

—Daisy Fried, author of Women’s Poetry: Poems and Advice
