How much earth: the Fresno poets
Poetry. "At one level, these are poems of Fresno. They surprise the reader into seeing how a superb, various art has emerged from one part of California. They revel in the actual. They show the tract homes, the fruit orchards, the farms, the scalding summers. But at a more important level, HOW MUCH EARTH proves one of the oldest truths of language: that the here-and-now and the local have the best sort of kinship with the infinite. Everyone who knows that they came from somewhere will be moved, enchanted, and confirmed by this book" -Eavan Boland.
