Boy with thorn by Laurentiis, Rickey, author.

Boy with thorn

In a landscape at once the brutal American South as it is the brutal mind, Boy with Thorn interrogates the genesis of all poetic creation--the imagination itself, questioning what role it plays in both our fascinations with and repulsion from a national history of racial and sexual violence.

Always at its center, though, is
