LSU Press is commonly known as the most prestigious southern publisher of poetry. Arnoult's first book of poetry, What Travels with Us, also published by LSU Press, became the Southern Independent Booksellers Alliance's poetry book of the year, and the only poetry book to win a Weatherford Award from the Appalachian Studies Association and Berea College before poetry became a separate category. In other words, in 2005, competing against both story collections and novels, it won the award. So Galaxie Wagon was truly a poetry collection we had been waiting a decade for! ''Whether you prefer a well-told story or a well-crafted poem . . . Galaxie Wagon offers the best of both worlds. In a compulsively readable voice . . . Arnoult's storytelling prowess thrives in the individual poems and narrative arc of Galaxie Wagon. At once aesthetically elegant and down-to-earth, this book will carry readers through the switchbacks of life and down a ''cosmic highway'' that may be new, but feels like the way home.''--Daily News Journal. ''You don't need to know a thing about poetry to fall in love with Galaxie Wagon. It's an impossible-to-put-down autobiography in verse.''--Herald-Citizen.
