Subterranean Red

REVIEW 1                 REVIEW 2                 REVIEW 3

Kathleen Johnson's Subterranean Red is a rich work by a richly talented poet. The collection is a sharp evocation of the Oklahoma landscape and of the people who are shaped by it. For those who know that landscape, these poems will ring true. For those who do not, they will be a fitting introduction to a world that is starkly beautiful, simply powerful, and profoundly unique. Sensitive and perceptive, here is a book to be read many times over, always with growing appreciation.
