Natural Trouble continues Scott Hightower's investigation begun in Tin Can Tourist . Themes of inheritance extend through changes of landscape and bad weather to hungers, urgencies, inequities, and bereavements. Hightower also reminds us that the practice of writing is at the core of democracy: poetry seeks a foundation in the truth of the individual, guaranteed and restored through the integrity of language.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Truly a cabinet of curiosities, each poem a collage of surprising or remembered details, opening onto further marvels. The effect is vertiginous-and exhilarating. Scott Hightower has Marianne Moore's scissors and Elizabeth Bishop's spectacles, and he has written a book in the spirit of their adventurous precisions." -- -J. D. McClatchy
Nothing is off limits to Hightower, nor does anything seem out of place. If his tone is sometimes light, it is also smart and brave...A fine addition to contemporary poetry collections. * -Library Journal *
