Worship the Pig, Gaylord Brewer's eleventh collection, is by the poet's own definition his "Americas book." The migration begins from his Tennessee home to the Inside Passage of Alaska, then detours sharply south in a return to his beloved Costa Rica, then onward finally to the qualified paradise of Brazil's Ilhabela. Brewer's persistent obsessions--translating the call and challenge of the feral world, negotiating some truce with private ghosts--have never been more poignantly and sharply drawn. From chiseled lyrics to more expansive narratives--by turns reserved and raucous, always heartfelt and riveting--these new poems exhilarate. "No schematic for conquest, / no reckless conclusions, // no tenuous argument for connection / beyond the simple truth / of what accrues together." At mid-career, the author called "the most natural poet in the country" by the Asheville Poetry Review continues to astonish.
