We Almost Disappear
David Bottoms

Rooted in the ways of Southern families, David Bottoms turns his narrative skills to intimate and personal tales, documenting the failing health of elderly parents and the vibrancy of youth, within a setting where "mostly there was silence, as though they'd all agreed / the world was beyond comment." These poems blend history with the immediate present in a passionate and compassionate collection peopled with tobacco-spitting grandmothers, baseball coaches, undertakers, bluegrass musicians, and a growing daughter.

For We Almost Disappear, David Bottoms

"David Bottoms is brilliant in the clarity and richness of his language, profoundly humane in the breadth and compassion of his vision. He is quite simply one of the best poets writing today."— Jane Hirshfield

"David Bottoms is one of our necessary  poets.. a storyteller, a seeker, a Southern writer rooted in place and coming to terms— or trying to— with ultimate things. We Almost Disappear rescues memories from oblivion and holds them up to the light— transformed, transfigured. It is a radiant book."— Edward Hirsch
