A RANDOM CENSUS OF SOULS

A RANDOM CENSUS OF SOULS

These poems take us far afield: to Rome and London, to Nova Scotia and New England, to Colonial Rhodesia. But always they return to the mountains and prairies of Wyoming and the Dakotas. “I read A Random Census of Souls a month after I read Toni Morrison’s A Mercy, and both books had a similar effect on me. I fell in love with their musicality and lyrical language. These books left me awed by the fact that humans are still here and touched by the intimate moments of tenderness that both books preserve in their pages.”
