9780820338811
Billiter's poems, spaced to stutter on the page, create a compelling yet dark world of small-town childhood that is disorienting and not all that bucolic. The town of Shinbone is an intense place: boys set bottles of cheap aftershave on fire, which segues with uncomfortable ease into grandmother's killing axe dispatching chickens and Soup's hand shredded in the corn dryer. This collection pushes a recollected past to an extreme, replacing memory with myth and lacing narratives of disfigurement, accident, wildness, and murder with a strange enchantment. Childhood here is no idyll, but rather the dreamlike entryway to the desires, doubts, and dismay of adulthood.Binding Type: PaperbackAuthor: William BilliterPublisher: University of Georgia PressPublished: 04/01/2011ISBN: 9780820338811Pages: 72Weight: 0.23lbsSize: 8.54h x 5.57w x 0.20d
