Reviews / Endorsements

“Reading A Hog Slaughtering Woman is not unlike discovering a box of daguerreotypes in the attic of an abandoned farmhouse or barn loft. Portraits: Katherine Daley, Katie Teppe, Uncle Frank, Roy Nickol, Great Grandma Agnes who tossed 'her slop pot / out the upstairs window every morning.'. . . Preserved here is a community of rural folk whose histories Marlatt so fully imagines that each character steps magically from still-life back into this world where past and present co-exist.”—Jack Driscoll

DAVID MARLATT still lives on the farm where he was born, near the village of Richland, Michigan. He is also a musician who plays trombone, bass sackbut, and fiddle. His poems have appeared in Nimrod, Passages North, Poetry Northwest, Sycamore Review, and elsewhere.
