Chattahoochee: Poems

Author: Patrick Phillips
Publisher: University of Arkansas Press

A river runs through Patrick Phillips’ collection Chattahoochee, and a family saga as powerful and poignant as the landscape in which it unfolds. Here are tales of a vanished South, elegies for the lost, and glimpses of what Flannery O’Connor called “the action of grace in territory held largely by the devil.” In language delicate and muscular, tender and raw-boned, Phillips writes of family, place, and that mythic conjunction of the two we call home.
