Primate Behavior is the product of a wild and exhilarating imagination, ranging wide across an abundant imaginary landscape. Sarah Lindsay writes of space migration and the cave paintings of 35,000 B.C.- her poems speak from the perspective of an embalmed mummy and detail the adventures and misadventures of nineteenth-century explorers. Lindsay investigates the world as no one has yet had the daring and imagination to do, reanimating history and folk legend and setting in motion curious new worlds that speak eccentrically, but unmistakably, to our own. Primate Behavior is a remarkably sustained and self-assured performance.
