Fire Never Sleeps

Carla Hartsfield

Hartsfield visits the Texas of her childhood, revealing some of the darkly humourous, as well as volatile, elements of growing up in an oppressive religious environment. This is a dazzling collection of lively and luminous poems, many of which resonate with a song-like quality that reflects her passion for music.
