Hominid Up by Neil Shepard
From Salmon Poetry Press, Ireland


Hominid Up, Neil Shepard's sixth book of poetry, turns a nightmared, insomniac eye on both urban and rural landscapes: from the brassy multitudes of Manhattan, to the lone man standing in a northern stream amidst its shush and thrum. At the heart of this book is a darkly political vision of post-millennial America, exploring the tensions and flashpoints of class and race that lead us toward our days of reckoning. Whether examining the “ailments” on a city street, where the Haves helicopter above the Have-nots, or the coastal communities from South Carolina to Maine, where cruise-ship crowds mix uncomfortably with local fishermen, or the pastures of Vermont, where developers buy up hilltop acreage from cash-strapped farmers, Shepard immerses himself in this brazen new century and brings back “the bite and sting that bothers us all.”
