"Joe Wilkins has a big, true, highway-running American voice. When you see a new book of his, you should celebrate. Just buy it, put down the window, and let the music blow back your hair. It's nothing but alive." – Luis Alberto Urrea
I’m more than pleased to see my poem “J & W Redemption, Highway 9, North Iowa,” along with a striking set of images by Edward Keating and work by luminaries like Bonnie Jo Campbell, Rodney Jones, Campbell McGrath, and David Wojahn, featured in The Southern Review‘s Americana issue.
