Cry Father by Benjamin Whitmer

This book, following the dark criminal adventures of a tree cutter in disaster sites in mourning for his son, is a perfect piece of brutal poetry. Raw in its emotion, it speaks to and for the people society pushes to the margins. I plan to read this book at least every ten years for the rest of my life.
Read about another book on the list.
