A Notebook on the work of Nikky Finney

I've followed Nikky Finney's writings for years now, but finally committed to writing about her regularly this earlier this year with the publication of her book Head Off & Split. Finney also has published four other volumes, The World is Round (2003), Rice (1995), and Wings Made of Gauze (1985), and a collection of short stories Heartwood (1997). She is also editor of the collection of The Ringing Ear: Black Poets Lean South (2007).  

I plan to continue developing this digital notebook concerning her work.
