Evans’ jarring debut book of poems draws on his experience as a combat engineer for the Army National Guard. Like fellow soldier-poet Brian Turner (Here, Bullet, 2005), Evans served in the armed forces during the awful, shell-shocked years immediately after 9/11. Unlike Turner, Evans did not complete a tour of duty overseas, and the collection’s tenor and content reflect this: “I’ve seen the Mojave, but I’ve never seen the desert. / In training, I swept for mines, but I’ve never seen / my brother’s leg destroyed after detonation.” Evans articulates the distance between the war in Iraq and the war as he felt it from afar, tethering the poetic voice to the sharp sensory impressions of his childhood home in the South: “the quarter horses in your uncle’s barn, / or that goddamn clay red as your wife’s hair.” A strong contribution to wartime poetry composed by combatants, including Randall Jarrell’s Little Friend, Little Friend (1945), Michael Casey’s Obscenities (1972), and Yusef Komunyakaa’s Dien Cai Dau (1988). Given recent controversy over domestic surveillance and enlisted whistle-blowers, this is a necessary read, indeed. --Diego Báez
