Juliana Spahr on Poems Descriptive of Rural Life and Scenery

by Jen Tynes

Juliana Spahr has a little something to say about Tim Earley’s forthcoming book:

“Tim Earley writes the regional lit that an Appalachia that has been screwed over once by industrialization and then again by deindustrialization deserves. It is angry, dirty, and drunk.

Don’t let the John Clare title confuse you. Earley is our hillbilly Rimbaud.”
