News from Down to the Cafe
New Poems
David Lee

Stories overheard at the local "Wayburne Pig Cafe," these poems capture a rural community's own voice, peppered with gossip and arguments right off Main Street. Moving slightly away from the "pig poems" which have engaged so many readers, News from Down to the Cafe finds Lee more lyrical, gentle, and reflective than in previous works, yet once again his characters are heartbreaking, hilarious, and unfailingly entertaining.
