Ghost, like a Place

By Iain Haley Pollock

Price: $15.95



About the Book

This collection highlights the complexities of fatherhood and how to raise young kids while bearing witness to the charged movements of social injustice and inequities of race in America. Memory, culpability, and our very humanness course through this book and strip us down to find joy and inspiration amid the darkness.

About the Book

Pollock’s poetry draws from the violent history of America, showing how it inevitably influences young minds coming of age.
