"Smote is a book of the dark reality of our daily existence; it is a book of abiding grace."-Robert Olen Butler I release you like the crank-addled truck driver releases his cargo at the midnight dock until the warehouse is one in a trail of crumbs, little light left on behind him. James Kimbrell is the author of The Gatehouse Heaven and My Psychic, and the co-translator of Three Poets of Modern Korea. He been the recipient of the Discovery/The Nation Award, a Whiting Award, a fellowship from the NEA, and a Morton Prize.
