Salt Hill 17


The dark, elegant cover looks serious. The work inside is seriously good. Salt Hill 17 boasts a wide range of necessary writing: Sarah Manguso tells us what the ABCs really stand for, Heidi Lynn Staples takes a close look at Karen Volkman’s poetry collection Spar, and Lee Stern suggests we read a book about a penguin. Poems about the heart. Stories about heartbreak (and weedwhackers).
