Driving to Biloxi by Edgar Simmons

This is actually a wonderful book of poetry by a poet from Mississippi who only produced two books in his lifetime and has largely slid into obscurity. This one isn’t getting any attention on the shelves of the Albertville Public Library. Turn it loose to find a home on some lucky poetry lover’s shelves. To poetry lovers: if you find this title in a used bookstore, snatch it up!
