Poetry. "Amy Scattergood's poems are elegant, severe, intellectual, and somewhat cool to the touch. They are also passionate, dense, musical, and both imagistically and aurally sensuous, full of what in food talk is called mouth feel. While her poems are often idea-governed, they proceed by way of the world of things, remembering always that words are things also" - Reginald Shepherd. "THE GRAMMAR OF NAILS is an enacting of attention that is beautiful and compelling and necessary. Amy Scattergood has attended to the needs and the offerings of the natural world surrounding her, as well as to the needs and offerings of language, and this book has become a collusion and a collision between word and world which is exciting and, in its clarity and precision, a little dangerous" - Bin Ramke.
