Spare Parts
by Ken Hada
2011 Western Heritage Award & Oklahoma Book Award Finalist 
Poems from Spare Parts featured on Keillor’s The Writer’s Almanac 

In these poignant poems, Hada probes the natural and human worlds with equal candor, forcefulness, and literary artistry. His canvas is broad, and he paints it with rare compassion, grit, and unblinking emotional honesty. This is a book to read and return to, again and again, for the little triumphs necessary to sustain us through the tragedies of our lives.
