The Fawn Abyss

Adam Tavel


List Price: 14.95*

The Fawn Abyss explores the emotionally fraught terrain of family, belonging, and injustice against the pastoral backdrop of the Delmarva Peninsula on the Chesapeake Bay. Steeped in memory, Tavel's poems conjure a cast of cultural ghosts-from Abraham Lincoln to Sam Cooke-in their documentary investigations of the past, including the poet's own youth. These retrospections, buoyed by wry wit and cinematic detail, sustain the collection and anchor it in our own whiplash age.
