This is not a book of poetry but rather a memoir and needs to be moved to another section of the library.

This is an excellent volume for the Albertville library. Although it’s now 20 years old, it can still be considered a late career collection (Hall was in his early sixties at publication). There are over 200 pages of Hall’s poetry here and it includes some of his best known (“Ox Cart Man,” “The Man in the Dead Machine”) and one of my favorites, “Names of Horses.” His poetry often dwells on rural subject matter and is very accessible. This is an easy thumbs up.
