Poetry. Winner of the 2014 Cider Press Review Editors' Prize.
"In FIELD WORK, Sarah Estes accomplishes that remarkable trick the best poets have mastered: to fully embody and give voice to the notion of life as inconclusive and unsatisfying, and yet, to do so with poetry of doggedly fierce aliveness and beauty."—Kwame Dawes, author of DUPPY CONQUEROR: NEW AND SELECTED POEMS (Copper Canyon Press, 2013)
"In FIELD WORK, Sarah Estes presents us with poems that are grounded in family and in place without being tethered or bound ... This is a book both disturbing and comforting, melancholy and full of beauty."—Ruth Foley, Managing Editor, Cider Press Review
