"There's so much life in this beautiful book that it feels like a living thing. Wesley McNair is a kind of Chekhov of American poetry."
--Ted Kooser, Pulitzer Prize winner and Poet Laureate

Set in rural Virginia, the poet's younger sister Aimee is adrift in a difficult marriage to Mike, an off-the-grid gun shop owner. Through this book-length poem, Wesley McNair, one of today's finest storytellers in poetry or prose, attests to patience and perseverance, and an unwavering belief in compassion and reconciliation, even amidst the ugly politics of our time.
