Crysta Casey’s Green Cammie

    Green Cammie “…drawn from two manuscripts found completed among her papers at the time of her death, is an unflinchingly honest record of the poet's experiences with addiction, homelessness, and mental illness as well as of her stint as a journalist in the U.S. Marine Corps. Green Cammie poignantly explores Casey's life in the Seattle VA Hospital and its adjoining worlds: Seattle’s low income housing, public parks, and streets. The winner of a Hugo Award from the Richard Hugo House and a finalist for Seattle Poet Populist in 2006.”
