Mississippi: Poems by Ann Fisher-Wirth with Photographs by Maude Schuyler Clay


“If you’re not from Mississippi, it’s hard to claim the right to write about it,” Fisher-Wirth says. Although she has lived in the Magnolia State for the past 30 years, she says that Clay, who is fifth generation Mississippian, brought an authority to the collection that she could not. But anyone who reads Mississippi will find that Fisher-Wirth has a deep understanding of the complex lives of Mississippians.
