PIGTOWNPigtown, by Anthony Roberts, graduate, MFA in Creative Writing program at The New School

Red Dashboard LLC, 2017

From the publisher: Roberts’ Pigtown is part love letter and part battle cry. His poetry explodes off the page with an unflinching fury wrapped in a deep desire to reach for the light through the darkness and to speak for the silent. He weaves a poetic tale of struggle, loss, triumph, and survival on the gritty streets of Baltimore. Pigtown is relentless and gripping, much like the city that inspired it.
