Description
Set in the Appalachian landscape, Rose McLarney's debut collection, The Always Broken Plates of Mountains, gives voice to a chorus of speakers, who are at once plainspoken, reverent, and musical. There is a tenderness that persists as McLarney explores mountain land and those who live and love and lose on it, and what it means to be faithful to oneself, to one's heritage, and to one another.
