“McGrath [is] a writer who could help save poetry from academia and get the rest of us reading it again.”
Outside Magazine

From the MacArthur “Genius Grant” and Kingsley Tufts Award winner Campbell McGrath, acclaimed author of Shannon, comes In the Kingdom of the Sea Monkeys, an electric new collection of poetry. Writing in the poetic tradition of Walt Whitman, McGrath captivates with ironic romanticism as he lyrically explores the banality of the everyday—from the decay and transformation of the nation’s cities to “Shopping for Pomegranates at Wal-Mart on New Year’s Day”—in poems that entreat us to love what endures amid the detritus of American pop culture.
