Synopses & Reviews
"In Hurt's breathtaking mixed work of prose poetry and verse, a history of place is caked in a 'deep layer of red dust.' The Rust Belt's rattling structures and sutured-up asphalt roads are palpable here in every musical sentence."Oliver de la Paz
"In Hurt's sparkling debut, the tinny, melancholic, gorgeous stir of Baudelaire's heartbroken metropolis is heard again, but this time its flesh and spirit are rusted. Hurt brings the prose poem back to life."Sabrina Orah Mark
