“'We must have faith in what's not given,' writes Anthony Butts in Little Low Heaven, his extraordinary new volume of poetry. Seldom is a second book by a young poet so philosophically ambitious, and yet so vulnerable in its intimacy.”—Angela O'Donnell, Chistianity and Literature

Little Low Heaven describes a world of isolation and beauty, art and prophecy, loss and yearning. In his tender yet terrible reading of the human condition, Anthony Butts has become a poet of pain and sorrow and, finally, of the barest budding of hope.
