Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0979337615, Paperback)

Family Matters: Homage to July, The Slave Girl is a group of poems about slaves, slave owners and slave owning in North Carolina. The distinguished poet Allen Grossman, has selected Family Matters: Homage to July, the Slave Girl, by Shelby Stephenson of Benson, North Carolina as the winner of the 2008 Bellday Poetry Prize. About the winning entry, Professor Grossman said, An intense and heart-breaking poetic narrative which, in its exploration of historical and personal materials, holds affinities to the work of Susan Howe and to James Agee's classic Let Us Now Praise Famous Men. Family Matters is a strenuous questioning and exposure of the fictions of ownership, whether of persons or places, graves or farms.
