Archie's "Home Country" is now on Facebook
Part loving biography, part autobiography, When I Go Back to My Home Country, is a deeply felt narrative
of Emily Wilson's long friendship with the celebrated poet A. R. Ammons. Unsparing in detail about
a complex and enduring relationship, this memoir is a compelling account of her admiration and respect for one
of our leading literary figures. Emily Wilson is a poet herself, and her story is a vivid and
moving tribute, told with both candor and affection.
