In the Laurels, Caught is a collection of lighthearted, deep-rooted poems written around the Appalachian region of North Carolina in Madison County. An adventurous, intellectually restless native, Lee Ann Brown writes out of attachment but with the slant of a transplanted outsider. She investigates elements of local language, musicality, material culture, and landscape, using collage, found poetry, and oral history and anecdote.

A Daylily's blossom
only lasts one day

Binnorie O Binorie O

My grandmother showed me
how to have my say

O the glory O the glory

Now every time I see a faded drooping bud

I deadhead it like she did so the rest can live on

The story O the story
