Description:

Had Slaves by Catherine Sasanov is winner of the inaugural Sentence Book Award, which goes annually to a manuscript consisting entirely or substantially of prose poems or other hard-to-define work situated in the grey areas between poetry and other genres ? work that promotes the mission of Sentence: A Journal of Prose Poetics to extend the conception of what the prose poem is or can be.#13; #13; Written out of Sasanov?s discovery of slaveholding among her Missouri ancestors and the fragmented evidence left behind of the 11 men, women, and children held in their bondage, Had Slaves pieces together lives endured from slavery to Jim Crow across a landscape lost beneath big box stores, subdivisions, and tourist sites. Avoiding Gone With the Wind stereotype, Sasanov takes her readers to slavery?s less expected locale: where "big house" means "log cabin" and "plantation" is a small grain farm with tarantulas mating in the corn. An unflinching look at a stumbled-upon past set in motion after finding the words, "Had slaves."
