bookshelves: poetry, read-in-2012
Read in July, 2012

The first poetry book I've read this year. Mostly good poems, with a two or three truly great ones. Brown has a sharp ear for Southern speech and an even sharper eye for the details of poor Southern life.

UPDATE: I read this a 2nd time on my flights to and from Seattle. (It really frustrates me that Goodreads doesn't allow you to give one book multiple entries.) I gave it four stars the first time, but after finding a few more layers, I want to give it 5 stars this time. A beautiful, brutal collction.
