If you like beautiful narrative poetry with a driving narrative, this book is for you. Wilkins makes you ache for place and people and human connection. He has a knack for detail--the right detail at the right time. He knows how to write a line, and then the next line, and the one after that until you're wrapped up in his world, until you are his characters, until you are living their lives. A wonderful book of poetry.
