My Mother's Red Ford

New and Selected Poems (1986—2019)

My Mother's Red Ford represents Roy Bentley's first six books, four of which won or distinguished themselves in national competitions. According to Kate Fox, writing of Walking with Eve in the Loved City: "Readers of the Dayton, Ohio native's previous collections—Boy in a Boat, Any One Man, The Trouble with a Short Horse in Montana, and Starlight Taxi—will recognize many of the people and places in Walking with Eve in the Loved City: Bentley's ancestors, Dayton's Comanche Drive, Sonny and Bobby Osborne, Roy's Shell Station, Jupiter, Florida, and Fleming-Neon, Kentucky. All are elevated through the loving crucible of memory and language to divine status."
