about this item

Winner of the 2015 Agnes Lynch Starrett Poetry Prize
This collection draws from the author's personal experiences hitchhiking and hopping freight trains around the Unite States and Canada, and from conversations and informal interviews with contemporary nomads, hobos, and others living on society's social and economic edges. Set in a semi-mythical America, In the Volcano’s Mouth in part addresses women’s experiences on the road, which are often reduced to sidekick or victim, or omitted entirely, in romantic portrayals of life on the road. It is is a portrait of life on the enchanted margins, a private world large enough for anyone to find themselves in.
