THE TIME OF HUNGER

Books

IN THE PRESS

Reading Station Lights is like taking a slow hike through all the landscapes of the earth  … these poems survive each new wilderness, while always keeping underfoot the path back home.

JEAN KAVANAGH

AUTHOR of How the Weather Was and Other Places

What sets [Pettway's poems] apart more than any other virtue is the subtle but insistent sense of irony they convey—one of the rarest and most valuable aspects of any art, but especially of poetry.

MILLER WILLIAMS

INAUGURAL POET

Pettway's beautiful sequences bring shocking clarity to the humanity in everyday moments. Highly recommend.
