“Peckham’s exquisite language does what writing is supposed to do—envelope you in a new universe and take you on a dramatic and emotional journey. His new collection, Body Memory, continues what is now his hallmark: It explores the deeply personal and hard-to-articulate understandings of what it means to both have a body and also be one. His fears, his phobias, his frailties are all on display so we can better understand ourselves and what it means to be alive—and to be grateful to be alive—today.” —Derek B. Miller, author of Norwegian by Night
