In this wryly observant first collection, David Hampton gives us an insider's view of life in these post-millennium Appalachians. What makes it taste better Humor which manages to be all at once ironic and compassionate. A sense of history, and of one's own place in it. Precision of language and the joy of its tang on your tongue. -- Pauletta Hansel, author of Divining and First Person

Hampton writes for the sake of the reader, not just for the sake of the poetry. Humorous, touching, with the flavor of outrageousness is how I would describe it. His poems are well-rooted in reality, with their branches pointing to the surreal. You don't have to be one of those hoity-toity poetry types to enjoy his verse, neither.
