Description

Haunted by the voices of those committed to the notorious Virginia State Colony, epicenter of the American eugenics movement in the first half of the twentieth century, this evocative debut marks the emergence of a poet of exceptional poise and compassion, who grew up in the shadow of the Colony itself.

Review quote

The Virginia State Colony for Epileptics and Feebleminded is art, and purposeful and fantastic art at that... Brown deserves every praise that comes her way - the poetry is incredible, and the history that it reveals as painful as it is necessary to understand.
