Poet Nathaniel Perry

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.
