DamagesBook - 1995
Bottoms has a breathtaking ability to capture human tenderness, vulnerability, and cruelty in a single line. His poems, set primarily in the American South, witness people in their moments of failure, as their fantasies and families collapse around them. Like Faulkner and Dickey, Bottom blurs the distinction between good and evil, while exploring the violent underbelly of our national history.
