Review quote

"The characters that populate 'the south' of Nin Andrews' No Excuses are a mixture of Green Acres and Carson McCullers. Andrews' gift for storytelling has never been stronger than in these quasi-autobiographical poems and prose poems with clairvoyant grandmas, roosters of questionable pedigree, one-armed farmhands, and a girl obsessed with holding her breath. Pour yourself some lemonade and take this book to the front porch swing of your imagination for some truly amazing surreal farm-lore." - Denise Duhamel
