"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
My essay “Eleven Kinds of Sky,” featured alongside striking photographs by Lisa M. Hamilton, is in the January/February issue of Orion. As always, lots of good stuff in this issue, including the first installment of Luis Alberto Urrea’s “Wastelander” column and a short story by Pam Houston.
