In part a homage to Bob Dylan, the classic American road trip is ironically paralleled to a visit to the underworld in this reverent and curious poetic journey across the United States. From the marginal clays and farms of the poet’s hometown to the mountains and deserts of the American southwest, this wistful and wise collection offers poems that are fiercely honest and contain a wide variety of images, from science to religion to American life since 9/11.
