One of his book's poems is called "Sewage Disposal." Need we say more?
Nathaniel won the American Poetry Review/Honickman First Book Prize, for his first book NINE ACRES. The title comes from a Depression Era agricultural manual. Nathaniel teaches at Hampton Sydney College and lives in Farmville. He's working on some new writing involving (among other things) an 18th century Farmville-area adultery scandal.
