GRAVITY, U.S.A. 


Quercus Review Press (2006)

Winner of the Quercus Review Poetry Series Annual Book Award

"With her debut, Jacqueline Jones LaMon graces us with a collection both introspective and out of body, her poems taking on the weight of the everyday world, and the extraordinary within it. GRAVITY, U.S.A. is not just a book filled with a subtle, sorrowful, and ultimately brazen power, but a place where you'll want to visit, and stay.”
