The Name of the Nearest RiverThe Name of the Nearest River by Alex Taylor

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Beautifully written stories about Kentucky during various time periods from post-Revolution to present day. The characters are often down on their luck, lost, lonely. A strong collection in the tradition of writers like Ron Rash, Chris Offutt, and Tom Franklin.

At the Great Door of Morning: Selected Poems and TranslationsAt the Great Door of Morning: Selected Poems and Translations by Robert Hedin

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


A career-spanning collection of poets by a wonderful poet of the Midwest United States who has also translated the poems of strong Norwegian poets. This collection includes both his originals and his translations with his precision for observation and language. A wonderful introduction to a vastly underappreciated poet.
