The poems in "Iron Wheel" are hard won, the product of the clash of cultures: Southern, religious, gay. Miller achieves an intense, disturbing, and singular poetic voice, capable of tenderness, but undaunted when forced to confront the harsh, often violent realities of contemporary life in the South.
Greg Miller teaches poetry, literature, and creative writing at Millsaps College in Jackson, Mississippi. His poetry has appeared in "Agni, Berkeley Poetry Review, Paris Review, Threepenny Review, Verse, "and "The Chicago Review."
