About this product
- DescriptionBilliter's poems, spaced to stutter on the page, create a compelling yet dark world of small-town childhood that is disorienting and t 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 idyll, but rather the dreamlike entryway to the desires, doubts, and dismay of adulthood.
