This breathtaking collage memoir in stark prose poetry takes place in a post-industrial upstate New York town. With gimlet-eyed clarity, the author gives equal weight to the momentous and the mundane, spanning the arrest of her former lover for pedophilia, her work as a rehabilitation counselor for the severely and persistently mentally ill, and the death of her mother and aunt. Knickpoint’s characters exist at the fringes of accepted space; their struggles reveal the conflicted spirit as a landscape both bright and dark.

Deft, precise, elegant, KNICKPOINT emerges uncategorizable, transcending what we know of poetry, essay, the novel. With this savage and graceful pastoral, Margaret Wedge has revealed herself to be a master cartographer of the liminal space.

A haunting, magnificent book. As savage and as intelligent as the day is long.

– Cara Hoffman, award-winning author of Running and So Much Pretty
