I advise any serious reader of poetry and/or southern literature to purchase this book. The poems range from erudite to earthy to witty to just plain silly. Chappell can do it all--from formal verse to experimental free verse--and he does it all masterfully. He certainly deserves his reputation (Bollingen winner, T. S. Eliot Award winner, and NC poet laureate). In fact, I think it's time someone gave him a Pulitzer or National Book Award.
