In Left-Handed Wolf, Adam Day has crafted lines of brevity and precision without the least hint of preciousness; instead, the reader finds sharp juxtapositions of language, imagery, and sound. These are not-quite-haiku hewn from the materials of our soiled world. Beauty exists, but it's smudged, sullied, and sometimes horrific. In this raw, engaging, gorgeously observed collection, Day explores the compromised beauty of our world.--Laura Sims, author of Staying Alive
