THE LAST EXOTIC PETTING ZOO

AVAILABLE FOR PREORDER - LIMITED EDITION SIGNED HARDCOVER

The Last Exotic Petting Zoo is Jessica Tyner’s debut poetry anthology comprised of twelve years of writing. A series of epochs, the reader is led down a spectrum of fragments in time saturated with loss, love and hope. Spanning several countries and facets of relationships, Jessica delves into the underbelly of familial strife and awakenings from a childhood with bi-racial parents to the loss of her father. Featuring glimpses into the reality of the relationship with the self, from infatuation to despite, key pieces dig in deep to the most incestuous relationship everyone has. Each piece segues seamlessly to the next, a love story told piece by piece until they become one unstoppable force—just as such stories are meant to be and always have been.

Jessica Tyner is a Pushcart Prize nominated poet from Oregon and member of the Cherokee Nation. She received her master’s degree in writing from Portland State University’s Ooligan Press program, and has published poems and short stories extensively in the US and India. An entrepreneur, she’s the owner of MehtaFor, a business that provides a number of writing services for a variety of industries and clients. Jessica is also a certified yoga instructor, and in her spare time enjoys road trips—particularly to Napa Valley,— muscle cars, and spending time with her inspiration for The Last Exotic Petting Zoo, Chintan.
