Poetry. Comprising 30 years of work from 12 collections, BEAUTIFUL WRECKAGE includes early poems never before collected along with 24 new poems. A hunger for honesty and a charged lyricism have always made Bill Ehrhart's poetry remarkably his own. Though he's best known for his Vietnam War poems, his BEAUTIFUL WRECKAGE: NEW & SELECTED POEMS includes many lovely poems not about Vietnam.
"This book deserves serious recognition."—John Balaban
