Poetry. REDWORK is the 2017 Winner of the BOAAT Book Prize, judged by Dean Young. In Young's words, "While the poems of REDWORK carry their share of grief, fear, outrage, and dread, the world isn't too much with them. They are nimble, graceful in starkness, and at times fucking funny. Here is a poetry not afraid to be resourceful and even droll in the face of apocalypse."
