According to the Author's Note, "The characters in these poems are imaged from the photos of Walker Evans, but they have nothing to do with the real lives of the actual people. I am particularly indebted to Walker Evans's photograph 'Bud Field and His Family, Hale County, Alabama, Summer 1936,' which he took for the Farm Security Administration collection now in the Library of Congress. I find the photograph deeply moving and the figures in it are not static to me, bu vulnerable and alive."
