Adulterous Generation follows young people using what they have to try to create lives for themselves in our still-new century. A teenager turns to Yeats when she is haunted by her boyfriend’s criminal father; inmates of a juvenile justice facility use contraband staples and graphic novels to make meaning of their adolescence; a marriage falls apart over a convict-made cutting board; an expectant mother has a near-sexual, almost mystical experience with a developmentally disabled man in a Laundromat; and a young woman commits a robbery that will take her further than she could have imagined. If love is owing and being owed, the obligations in Amy L. Clark’s first full-length collection endure.
