In No One's Land
Poetry. Winner of the 2006 Sawtooth Poetry Prize, Paige Ackerson-Kiely's IN NO ONE'S LAND "...stakes a claim on wilderness and, most assuredly, mannages to homestead there. These are not the poems borne of quiet contemplation; they are edgy and lurid, painfully administering to the world of convenience stores, diners, one-night stads..daring to pick at the raw skin of being and to call it beauty...From the starkness of glaciers to the empty refrigerator, these poems rise from the most barren landscapes and manage to make of them fabled islands, joyful joyful things"--D.A. Powell.
