A unique collection that delves deep into the consciousness of a West Virginian coal mining community. This extraordinary debut is an inhabiting of the town of Logan, West Virginia. In four gorgeous lyric sequences, Alena Hairston conducts the voices of this population of miners and their kin, poignantly rendering their destitution, their heartbreak, and their incongruous strength and spirit. Winner of Persea's inaugural Lexi Rudnitsky Poetry Prize, a first-book award for American women poets.
