It's rare for a first book to demonstrate the confidence and distinctive voice of Blood Hyphen. Through the publication of individual poems in journals over several years, readers have become aware of Kenny Williams as a strikingly original writer, but the range and depth of his achievement in this collection are remarkable. Williams handles big concerns'faith, hurricanes, history, the conundrum of the body'with sly humor, assurance, and poise, instantly establishing himself as a mature and memorable presence.
