Description

In the tradition of Dorothy Allison, these poems find power in their renderings of an abused Southern girlhood.

Winner of the 2016 Lexi Rudnitsky Editor's Choice Award, this potent collection revisits a backwoods Virginia marred by sexual violence. In explosive poems, which explore the confluence of trauma and desire, Heather Derr-Smith reclaims a troubled past, empowering the present through an unlikely chorus of grace and fury.
