    One thought on “New Covenant Bound”

    1. I am late coming to T. Crunk's New Covenant Bound. I've no excuse for that. I'm just slow.Having finally got here, I don't hesitate to recommend to you this exquisitely crafted collection on the subject of displacement and loss. The publisher describes the book like this:The Western Kentucky area that now boasts beautiful, expansive bodies of water was once home to some 20,000 people, their houses, farms, townships and ancestral history. Residents were subjected to three waves of forced relocati [...]

    2. This book certainly brought the depressive aura of Western Kentucky to mind, the sense that people who lived there were cheated of something in the past.My favorite part is the prose story of two brothers who go into the Navy after moving to New Covenant. A parent wonders if they will ever return after the time awayThe title was well chosen, and reminded me of the area.

    3. Favorites: "Traveler's Rest," "Return" (first), "Hymn" (both), "3 Dreams"Wonderful exploration of how to combine non-fiction, storytelling/ straight-narrative with lyric poetry.
