"The poems on which Mills's early reputation will rest are the dramatic monologues, monologues of out-of-the-way characters treated with great understanding and sympathy. I can't help thinking of Sherwood Anderson's beautiful line: Only the few know the sweetness of the twisted apples.' Mills is one of those few."-Donald Justice (Pulitzer Prize winning poet).Wil Mills operates a sawmill in Sewanee, Tennessee. His chapbook," Right as Rain," was published in 1999 by Aralia Press. His poems have appeared in "Poetry, The Hudson Review, The New Republic," and elsewhere. He spent his childhood in Brazil, where his parents were agricultural missionaries for the Presbyterian Church.
