Getting to Gardisky Lake switchbacks from roadside maples to backcountry sequoia groves, from the lost curves of a high school track to the shining calves of Olympic hopefuls, from grade school crushes to married affection, from Jefferson’s slaves to Sherman’s march, from dumpster diving to shopping the mall.  These poems contain American multitudes, some whispering in sincerity and others bragging with thumbs hooked in their belt loops.  In this rich collection, Paul J. Willis invites you in and ushers you out to meet your neighbors and yourself.
