Using strategies of both prose and line, Scything Grace takes us through the still factoried streets of rust belt cities and the small towns between them, speaking in the voices of loss and redemption that are too often not heard in American poetry. From pool halls to back roads and corn fields to the industrial flats of Cleveland, hospitals and rehab centers, truck stops and alleyways, this isn't just working class literature. These are the stories and spaces of people barely working, just getting by, but every morning still going on. Book jacket.
