"Here is a gorgeous book of the most subtle and vivid mysteries, weighted with earth and time."-Li-Young Lee While hiking the Marin Headlands north of San Francisco, G.C. Waldrep became fascinated with how the military installations there impact the landscape's spectacular natural beauty. Thus, Waldrep produced "The Batteries," a sequence of nine poems that probe the interrelationship between beauty and violence. Poems from Disclamor have garnered G.C. Waldrep the 2006 Alice Fay Di Castagnola Award from the Poetry Society of America and a 2007 NEA Fellowship. He holds a PhD in American history from Duke University and an MFA from the Iowa Writers' Workshop.
