Rodeo in Reverse: Lindsey Alexander

Chicago Review of Books' Best Poetry Books of 2018

"A one-of-a-kind collection that crosses great swaths of geography and genre."

Kenyon Review's Holiday Reading Recommendations

"Lindsey Alexander’s debut collection, Rodeo in Reverse, is marvelous. The final poem, “Homestead, Sure” is worth the cover charge alone. Does anyone else feel like they need a few more chuckles this year? This poet’s wit and wonder will get you there."


What Luck, This Life: Kathryn Schwille

AJC's Best Southern Books of 2018

"The residents of the one-horse east Texas town of Kiser don’t know what hits them when debris from the Columbia shuttle disaster rains down one winter day in 2003. But the tragedy proves to be a catalyst in the lives of those who populate this collection of linked stories by Kathryn Schwille. During the recovery process, buried secrets rise to the surface, dreams take flight and sad realities come into sharp focus. “The gruesome carnage that embeds itself in bales of hay, in briar patches and schoolyards, forces this quiet community to grapple with its newfound national attention and reckon with uncomfortable truths,” writes AJC book critic Anjali Enjeti.
