Thomas Alan Orr's new collection of poems celebrates hardscrabble farm life, baseball, rock and roll, and the mysteries of faith. As critic Sarah Lyons notes, "he has an eye for everyone: the town drunk, the piano mover, the unchurched and the churched. Perhaps it's the way he tells stories . . . . There was no poem about 'nothing,' no piece that felt like empty words trying to create a meaning that wasn't there. 'Tongue to the Anvil' has breath in it-the light touch of humor when the improbable really happened, the slight sting of contempt or bitterness hidden in the desire for life, and the bare-boned struggle for hope."
