Field Guide to the End of the World , winner of the 2015 Moon City Poetry Award, delivers a whimsical look at our culture's obsession with apocalypse as well as a thoughtful reflection on our resources in the face of disasters both large and small, personal and public. Pop-culture characters--from Martha Stewart and Wile E. Coyote to zombie strippers and teen vampires--deliver humorous but insightful commentary on survival and resilience through poems that span imagined scenarios that are not entirely beyond the realm of possibility. The characters face their apocalypses in numerous ways, from strapping on rollerblades and swearing to taking notes as barns burn on the horizon. At the end of the world, the most valuable resource is human connection--someone holding our hands, reminding us "we are miraculous."
