Fiction. Poetry. Hybrid Genre. Winner of the Eyelands Book Award for Best Published Poetry Book of 2019. THE NURSERYMAN is a verse novel told in polyphony as the collected account of a 17th Century voyage to Meta Incognita—the absolutely unknown ice-land at the top of the world. A composite of original sources and collected accounts of medieval voyages, THE NURSERYMAN is a postmodern travel compendium that explores the hidden, magical worlds within our own.
