" Deep in the center of every tree, you'll find the heartwood. The characters in this new book by poet Nikky Finney are the heartwood of their small Kentucky communities. You'll meet Buck Jones and Mae Bennet, whose anger has twisted them up inside, Queenie Sims and Arizona Scott, who can see the good in people, and Trina Sims and Jenny Bryan, two young women who discover how much they are alike despite their different skin color.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"An ambitious book that seeks to explore the inner thought, feelings, perspectives that Kentuckians, black and white, have of each other." -- Bourbon Times (KY)


"Who would have thought you could get easier-to-read materials from a university press! Kudos to the University Press of Kentucky for their New Books for New Readers series." -- Feminist Bookstore News


"Strongly defined characters, taut narrative prose, sharply defined settings, and dead-on dialogue." -- Kentucky Monthly
