Poems take on the voices of Everss widow, Myrlie- his brother, Charles- his assassin, Byron De La Beckwith- and each of De La Beckwiths two wives. Except for the books title,Turn me loose, which were his final words, Evers remains in this collection silent. Yet the poems accumulate facets of the love and hate with which others saw this man, unghosting him in a way that only imagination makes possible.
