About this title


Inside a truck in rural Utah, a pig farmer tells his young friend “Turn right up there / and get off these pavements.” What follows are cold beers and the monologue of a semiliterate man telling his heart’s tale. The interweaving stories—caustic, hilarious and heart-rending—create one of the most haunting and accomplished poems of our time. Driving and Drinking takes about an hour to read. It will stay with you a lifetime.

About the Author:

David Lee, author of eight books of poetry, was Utah's first Poet Laureate. A former seminary candidate, semi-pro baseball player, and hog farmer, he has a Ph.D. with a concentration in Milton and is the recently retired head of the Languages and Literature department at Southern Utah University.
