In John McCarthy’s debut collection, lifetimes are spent traveling in pickup trucks across the Midwest, exploring spaces between love and its imperfect manifestations. Ghost County drives blue-collar back roads and guides readers through personal meditations about heritage, loss, and the desire to reimagine the past and future. Dateless baseball trophies, the world’s largest catsup bottle, and swivel set televisions illustrate a Midwest that is recognizable and echoes with its own poetry, affirming the traditions and experiences that bind this region to self and self to region.

COMMUNITY REVIEWS

sad poems submitted by mickplu on July 15, 2016, 7:11pm Contemporary themes abound in this poetry. I found many of the topics/tone to be depressing.

Sad, indeed submitted by Thomas B Brown on July 25, 2016, 6:29pm I heartily agree with mick, depressing. Maybe one in five is something I like.
