Winner of the 2019 Digging Press Chapbook Series Award. Abigail Carl-Klassen depicts rural spaces inhabited by a community dependent on the boom and bust cycles of oil fields and cash crop agriculture. The personal and confrontational voices in these eighteen poems embody the constant tension of political rhetoric and social vulnerability in contemporary America. Unapologetically tender and with a hopeful nod to an elusive American ideal, these poems imbue a nation’s struggles with culture, class, and identity.

The Digging Press Chapbook Series features pocket-sized books of 40 to 60 pages, perfect bound with square spines, as well as, original cover art and layout design. 

Photography by Alayna Klassen. Cover and layout design by Cynthia Alvarez. Numbered limited-run edition. Paperback.
