Shook, Melissa. My Suffolk Downs. Boston and Cambridge, MA: Pressed Wafer and Kat Ran Press 2012. Ca. 60p, many black-and-white photos. New paperbound. ** An evocative look in "poems and photographs" of backstretch life at the soon-to-disappear Suffolk Downs racetrack in East Boston. The "poems" are based on the colorful, often lyrical words of "the people who work at [the track's] demanding and often hard-scrabble jobs." (We can also offer the signed deluxe edition, 1 of 45 copies, at $150; please inquire.) Can be sent outside the U.S. for less than the default shipping rate.
