“Bird as beast. Bird as beauty. Bird as spectacle. In Every Living Species, Stalcup looks zoological impoverishment in the eye and refuses to blink. Instead, she turns loss into an exhibition of World's Fair proportions, concentrating her mad microcosm with biotechnology, infrastructure, art, and humanity … In this confluence, I recognize Hitchcock and Hurston, Crichton and Kübler-Ross — and in Stalcup, an aviphile of the highest order.” Lawrence Lenhart
Included in "What to Read When It's Been a Hell of a Year" in The Rumpus: "It’s been a hell of a year. Here are some recent releases that have helped me through that hell. Each of these books, in various ways, wound the crank on my empathy machine, and reminded me that telling a story can be a defiant act. Rebellion courses through each of these [books]. Pick one up — it might set a fountain of radical hope a-burble inside you." Claire Vaye Watkins
