Trailer Trash, selected for the 2016 Kore Press First Book Award by Robin Coste Lewis, is Oakland poet July Westhale’s first collection about the cotton-country of Riverside County, Southern California in the 1980s/90s. A book about poverty, ravaged landscape, and gender, Trailer Trash touches on a fuller, dustier California than Hollywood would have you believe.
