""Carrie Jerrell''s poems are as lyrically alive, intelligent, and unforgettable as Hank Williams''s best songs. A lover of paradox like John Donne, and as formally sophisticated, she moves between the divine and the profane in the blink of an eye. You can''t match this book for mature feeling and its rare, hopeful, sorrowing intelligence."" -Tom Sleigh. ""Carrie Jerrell''s After the Revival is a book of rich, tightly-packed poems suffused with the grit, rueful humor and pain of American country music."" -Dorianne Laux.
