Starkey's Book of States

Inspired by a children's geography primer, The Arrow Book of States, Starkey’s Book of States was conceived in response as a contemporary poetic atlas. Written over the course of several years, the collection includes fifty poems evoking the landscape or mood of each of the fifty states. In poetry which is by turns wistful and sardonic, comic and bleak, Starkey sketches a map of America more accurate than that of any cartographer. The book also contains illustrations by the artist Rafael Perea de la Cabada.

This book is also available in print.
