Hilles convinces us that the world may in fact be filled with that kind of potential, even as he sees very clearly the depths of our horrors. This vision makes Brother Salvage one of the most memorable and impressive first books of poetry I have ever read.
Rick Hilles reads from Brother Salvage at Shaman Drum Bookshop on Thursday, November 30.
