Coining a Wishing Tower—selected by Kaveh Akbar as winner of the 2020 Broken River Prize—is both story and song, a lyrical narrative that gathers and releases. There are moments of childlike wonder and of adult meditation—oftentimes one and the same. In fragments both real and unreal, this is a book of rituals, of history, of surrender.

The book is shaped into prose poems posing as a hybrid fragmented epic with characters questioning animalia and queries death, after-life, family, love, and displacement.
