In the tradition of Dorothy Allison, these poems find power in their renderings of an abused Southern girlhood.

Winner of the 2016 Lexi Rudnitsky Editors Choice Award, this potent collection revisits a backwoods Virginia marred by sexual violence. In explosive poems, which explore the confluence of trauma and desire, Heather Derr-Smith reclaims a troubled past, empowering the present through an unlikely chorus of grace and fury.
