Adoptable By Patrick Hicks Cover Image
Email or call for price.


To adopt a child from another country necessarily means taking them away from their culture, their language, and their ancestral background. As the child grows up, what affect does this have? In this new collection, Patrick Hicks explores the thorny connections between home and away, blood and belonging, fatherhood and place, and he examines what it means to be a family. Full of humor, sensitivity, and startling honesty, these poems are about one man's journey to understand his son. Patrick Hicks is the author of eight books and his work has appeared in some of the most vital literary journals in America. A nominee seven times for the Pushcart Prize, he has been a finalist for the High Plains Book Award, and the Gival Press Novel Award. He is the Writer-in-Residence at Augustana College and a faculty member at the MFA program at Sierra Nevada College.
