In lieu of a fall 2022 issue, Seneca Review Books released Katherine Indermaur’s I|I, winner of the 2022 Deborah Tall Lyric Essay Book Prize.
Katherine Indermaur’s full-length debut, I|I, is a serial lyric essay that explores the mirror’s many dimensions—philosophical, spiritual, scientific, mythological, historical—alongside the author’s own experiences. Anyone who has struggled with the disconnect between their outward appearance and their inner self knows how fraught and fragmentary it can be to behold one’s own reflection. Indermaur’s essay, however, does more than merely problematize the contested space where the face and the mirror meet. There is also affirmation to be found here. This is a book that thinks so keenly it breaks into song.
"In fragments one might be known. Seen from dozens of angles, the mind may move among facets and see the whole. It is, in fact, how seeing works in the human brain anyhow. Katherine Indermaur’s I|I finds rich resonances among these disparate but not discrete shards. Rather a full shape in time and space assembles. Both the 'lyric' and the 'essay' are fully achieved, home is sought, the self seeks to connect with all of what is beyond." —Kazim Ali, book prize judge and renowned poet and essayist

Sound like trapped thunder
In lieu of a fall 2020 issue, Seneca Review Books released Jessica Lind Peterson's Five Plots. Winner of the 2020 Deborah Tall Lyric Essay Book Prize, Jessica Lind Peterson explores tensions between domesticity and wildness, often discovering latent elements of magic within the mundane. Full of lyrical sentences, stylized prose, and moments that are by turns funny and poignant, and often both at once, SOUND LIKE TRAPPED THUNDER troubles the distinction between the human and the animal, calling into question such tidy categories we rely upon to help make sense of ourselves and the world we live in.”
“Peterson leads us, swirlingly, into the mystery through gorgeous, kaleidoscopic renderings of memory, being, and place. Infused with startling metaphor and similes, the poetic sparks of her images are only outdone by her ability to bring her trove into crisp focus, revealing the core of the very thing she wanted to save us from. Sound Like Trapped Thunder is a deep dive into despair, yes, but also reveals how lovely is the ascent.” —Jenny Boully, book prize judge and author of The Body and Betwixt-and-Between

In lieu of a fall 2018 issue, Seneca Review Books released its debut title, Erica Trabold’s Five Plots, winner of the inaugural Deborah Tall Lyric Essay Book Prize.
Five Plots delves into notions of how we are shaped by the land every bit as much as we shape it. This is a book that eschews easy ways of understanding and experiencing the world by investigating place as a malleable psychological and phenomenological force.
“The late poet and essayist Deborah Tall revolutionized the literature of place by changing our understanding of how potently we can be impacted by the conflagrations of landscape, family, and memory. Now, Erica Trabold kick-starts a new book series named for Deborah Tall with a debut that imaginatively probes its own part of the world through humor, history, speculation, and hurt. This is a pinprick of a book with a very generous heart.” —John D’Agata, book prize judge and author of The Lifespan of a Fact and About a Mountain.
