- Finalist, Poetry (Adult Nonfiction)
From migrations to pop culture, loss to la dérive, "Life in a Country Album" is a soundtrack of the global cultural landscape—borders and citizenship, hybrid identities and home, freedom and pleasure. It’s a vast and moving look at the world, at what home means, and the ways we coexist in an increasingly divided world. These poems are about the dialects of the heart—those we are incapable of parting from, and those that are largely forgotten.
