"A masterpiece. Lean and authentic, Fall Back Down When I Die captures what so many rural Americans on the margins are feeling; righteous anger and bitter disconnection, powerlessness and rugged pride. And yet, Wilkins has endowed his unforgettable cast of characters with humanity, gentleness, grace, and hard-won poetry. In prose as rugged and beautiful as the story’s Montana setting, Joe Wilkins has written one of the better novels I’ve read in years. An absolutely stunning book in every way.” – Nickolas Butler
I’ve got two poems up in the latest issue of Terrain.org, a journal of the built and natural environments. Lots of very fine writers in this issue, including Pam Uschuk, Ben Quick, and Alison Hawthorne Deming.
