Winner of the 2016 Lexi Rudnitsky Editor's 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.
