Based on a true story and in a unique voice that is both touching and funny, A.M. O’Malley gives us a poignant and beautiful book of prose poems that captures the experience of growing up on back roads, in smoky bars, and kitchens full of women. She writes about striking out into the world alone and finding her way and her truth. O’Malley breaks from traditional forms to tell her story with a hybrid of narrative and lyricism and explores the possibilities that happen when form is broken.
