Mikko Harvey

Mikko Harvey was born in Boston, Massachusetts. He attended Vassar College and the Ohio State University, and he currently serves as a digital poetry editor for Fairy Tale Review. His poems have been published in DIAGRAM, Iowa Review, Kenyon Review, and Maisonneuve. The Winnipeg Free Press calls his new poetry collection, Unstable Neighbourhood Rabbit (House of Anansi), “a startling debut.” It is surreal, absurdist, dreamlike, sometimes hilarious, even cheeky. The Toronto Star calls the collection “Bizarre but compelling, Harvey’s poetic ‘playground’ is fascinating territory.” Quill & Quire observes that “Harvey is capable of suddenly catching a reader with an immutable truth.” He lives in Brooklyn, New York City.
