New Book!

“[A] stirring, original collection.”

— Publisher’s Weekly

Took House is a multitude. Observer, witness, examiner, practitioner, and seer—Lauren Camp has produced a collection to be pondered, studied, enjoyed, and shared. … [A]n intellectual appetite with enigmatic grace.


Opening with hunger and appetite, Took House, an alluringly haunting poetry collection, invites the reader to the table to dip in and out of love, obsession, and what remains hidden.

— Psaltery & Lyre

The “sinew and lava” of both desire and loss pulse right beneath the surface of the poems…”

World Literature Today, Editor’s Pick

“[L]ines that are visually stimulating, that bring us into the poem and to the table where Camp then shares spoonfuls of intimacy.”
