Rose Bunch

“One of the collection’s most compelling pieces is “Pissing in Perpetuity” by Pushcart Prize-nominee Rose Bunch, about a disgruntled housewife’s war on the woman next door, a meth user who neglects her two charges, a dirty young boy and a teen with a penchant for urinating in his own backyard instead of the toilet. With humorous and vivid descriptions, Bunch describes a set of characters who are universally distrusting and unsympathetic, against a distinctive rural Arkansas backdrop of desolate fields, litter dumps and “a dried-out hillside striped with silver commercial chicken houses.” – The Rumpus on Speed Chronicles
