Item description for Even the Hollow My Body Made Is Gone (New Poets of America Series) by Janice N. Harrington & Elizabeth Spires...
"Memory and its embodiment in a colloquial, yet highly wrought musical language are what originally drew me to Harrington's manuscript and what continues to pull me back. We learn the story of Lillian and Webster and their children and grandchildren, a black family living a hardscrabble life in the rural South more than sixty years ago. Set on the cusp of the Civil Rights era, the poems chronicle a way of life that has long since vanished."-Elizabeth Spires, from the foreword
