Poetry. THE DUSTBOWL is a collection of serial poems that intertwine Arthurian legend and Dust Bowl Americana with fragmented memories of Arizona and California. The book's polyphonic voices conjoin perpetually questing knights and those journeying west into a single body. The Guardian's review of Dear World & Everyone In It complemented the anthology for its inclusion of pieces from this "expertly challenging" sequence.
