by Frank X Walker
The poems in Affrilachia are funny and sad, tragic and hopeful, angry and determined and as filled with generosity and love as poetry by any American writer in a generation.
This book is powerful and beautiful. It is honest and true. Affrilachia is the most necessary book by a Kentucky writer to be published in many years.
