A collection of poems by L. Lamar Wilson chosen by Lee Ann Brown as winner of the Carolina Wren Press Poetry Series prize.
“L. Lamar Wilson reinvents the memoir in verse with the tour de force of his Sacrilegion. With a keen eye that toggles between reverie and our hopes for the future, Wilson offers a salve for any soul that knows what it feels like to be counted out only to fight back toward resurrection. Few collections will move the spirit like this one; from its incantatory moments to those that speak in tongues, you believe, with every line, that this poet does ‘feel everything everywhere else/more than most.’”—A.VAN JORDAN
