Summary note:
"In the Volcano's Mouth is a traditional American road narrative rewritten for the new century, centering women - for so long victims or mute sidekicks in these types of stories - as the powerful central figures in a journey that is unequivocally feminist yet universal. Many of the poems draw from conversations and informal interviews with hobos, hitchhikers, and other American nomads the author met over the course of nearly a decade spent on and off the road. This book continues an investigation into poetry's role as a documentary or ethnographic form, in the legacy of Charles Reznikoff and CD Wright." --publisher's website.
