Stephen Cushman's Riffraff embodies the spirit of its title, a Middle English word for "every particle" or "things of small value." In this striking collection, shards and scraps of the impoverished, overlooked, and distasteful -- badgering crows, a prostitute, the speaker's own forgotten dreams, toothless dogs rolling in deer offal -- become occasions to meditate the on rich experiences we too often turn away from. Cushman is the Robert C. Taylor Professor of English at the University of Virginia.
