"Hard Facts is an ambitious first book that employs and intellectual structure, accessible language, crisp images, and a charming sense of humor give the work a luminescent quality."
--Lois Roma-Deeley, National Forum
"This first collection of poems by Peter Huggins reveals a distinctive new Southern voice. His poems pass freely from registers of homegrown surrealistic wit to intensities of feeling, plainly expressed: he is capable of making high comedy out of the dead who return to vote in out elections and of mourning the living, who ‘take/Their place among a thousand weary stars.’ This is a book to read and read again."
