1) An absolutely gorgeous collection of poems that paint vivid pictures of specific moments in time and space—both in American culture, and in the poet’s own life. The style reminds me of the beat poets—spare and raw, with every word conveying a world of meaning—and many of the poems touch a time in American history that is very dear to me. This is a wonderful collection, and very worth your time.
2) Rich settings. I have added points for excellent formatting and organization of the work.
3) Each poem wove a different story and I found myself pulled into each one. It was like I was sitting in a room listening to an old Grandma recall events from her past. I really enjoyed the read.
