Purchase Theologies of Terrain

Muddy Ford Press (My wonderful publisher)

Theologies of Terrain Paperback by Tim Conroy

“In this dwelling of scars/the history of dirt is blood,” Tim Conroy tells us in this
excellent debut. There is sadness in these poems, vivid renderings of childhood abuse and of lives that ended too soon, but the beauty of the natural world is also acknowledged, as is the realization that memory offers consolation as well as sorrow, all of which leads to the poet’s hard-earned affirmation that “love has saved me.” Bravo! – Ron Rash
