Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The way Booth thinks of salvation: God holding a broken abacus, coloured beads falling away.

Synopsis:

This year's winner of the Yale Series of Younger Poets competition is Maurice Manning's Lawrence Booth's Book of Visions. These compelling poems take us on a wild ride through the life of a man child in the rural South. Presenting a cast of allegorical and symbolic, yet very real, characters, the poems have "authority, daring, [and] a language of color and sure movement", says series judge W.S. Merwin.
