Poetry. Winner of the Transcontinental Poetry Award for an outstanding first book-length collection of poetry or prose. "UNCONTAINABLE NOISE is wildly alive: a collage that is part shoot-out at the poetry corral, part love story, a collection that overmodulates fearlessly into new domains of tone. Steve Davenport has created a new world that is ribald, violent, reverent, and thoroughly word-drunk"—Alice Fulton.
