Poetry, paperback, 33 pages, from Cooper Dillon Books.

The Book of Mankey’s dramatic narratives tell the story of Les Mankey, a grief-stricken dentist who retreats to a rural cabin and encounters a collector of arcade games, a church busybody, and a girl who talks to a newt. In the legacy of epic poems and the Book of Job, Pierce brings humor, music, and the risk of spirituality to this chapbook, parts of which have been published in New SouthBirmingham Poetry ReviewNinth Letter, Relief, and Poet Lore.
