Andrew Hudgins

Although born into a military family that moved frequently, Andrew Hudgins’s roots in the South and as a Southern Baptist have remained with him. His narrative poetry, often darkly humorous, has a firm base in Southern culture. Hudgins’s first collection, Saints and Strangers, was short-listed for the Pulitzer Prize.
