The spectrum of American folk culture, "this stuff colloquial with tongues in dust / by stuff of high prophecy," informs this book. McCollough offsets elevated language with manic and unheard prayers, folksongs that answer the mandates of the Bible, and a travelogue that speaks in medieval lyrics. As McCollough leads us across "a land in love with want," imagined thresholds become concrete landscapes, the things that bind us are cast aside, and we are encouraged to mourn the remains of the world as we exhume our buried wanderlust.
