Deepstep Come Shining
C.D. Wright

In her tenth book, this critically acclaimed poet offers haunting, elegant poetry which merges the mysteries of formal and linguistic experiment with traditional narrative. Whether read as individual poems, or as a larger suite, Deepstep Come Shining is a sensuous, Southern Gothic road trip filled with vernacular speech and startling imagery.

For Deepstep Come Shining, C.D. Wright

"Deepstep Come Shining is an incredible narrative... A brilliant, beautiful book."—Paterson Poetry Prize citation

"This unusual verse novel [is] an unholy marriage of Kerouac's bop prosody and Flannery O'Connor's Southern gothic sensibility."—Kirkus Reviews

"Expertly elliptical phrasings, and an uncounterfeitable, generous feel for real people, bodies and places, have lately made Wright one of America's oddest, best and most appealing poets."—Publishers Weekly
