Yeah, baby! George Wallace has a brand new chap of poems telling the tales of life Out West, in the way that only George Wallace can—with help from such characters as Sally Mae Thundercloud, Little Miss Shit Storm, Old Gene Hill, a Juke House Girl, a couple of dispirited waitresses, and a denim-clad angel!
Here's what others have said about Belt Buckles & Bibles!
“George Wallace’s poetry rolls onto the page like a Kansas thunderstorm, broad and bold and flashing lightning. Belt Buckles & Bibles travels the Midwest from Arkansas to Iowa, from the Flint Hills of central Kansas to the blue rooms of Kansas City, an excursion of ‘hip talk, loose dreams, songs sung in parking lots.’ The characters we meet are tough ‘like clay baked in a ferocious oven’ and plaintive with ‘faces, lonely as flower pots.’ Wallace takes us on a journey through the heart, as well as the Heartland.”—Al Ortolani, co-editor of The Little Balkans Review, Frontenac, Kansas
"In Belt Buckles & Bibles New York Poet George Wallace enters into the soul and the language of place. When he talks about the ‘pig kissing competition’ and ‘a muskrat out of water,’ you believe him. Wallace is not some New York poet come to meddle in the Southern Plains. He’s done his time, and is an honored instigator and ongoing host of our annual Woody Poets poetry gathering every year at the Woody Guthrie Festival in Okemah, Oklahoma. He’s earned it."—Nathan Brown, Oklahoma Poet Laureate 2013-2014
