This richly observed, unsparingly caustic booklength poem, presents the unflattering but grimly affectionate portrait of the hick town of Marfa (pop. 2,474). Here are cowpokes and Bible bashers, crazies in Chevies, trigger-happy Border Patrolmen, and gabby old-timers in Rays Bar, all intent on bending Readings ear.

He takes it all in, just as the slaughtered Indians and despised Spiks have done, but this suspicious stranger answers back. In blackly ironic, highly sophisticated poetry, created in their own language, out of their own drawling mouths, Readings rednecks damn themselves in this latter-day, divine comedy set in an arid all-American wasteland.
