A God Hangs Upside Down is the first full-length collection by poet and singer-songwriter Joseph Maviglia. Beginning with reflexive narrative as the poet travels through Southern Italy, the focus shifts to North America and portraits of a working-class family and the pulsating energy of the construction job site. Combining elements of Calabrian oral tradition with social commentary, Maviglia explores pantheist-Catholic mythology and challenges the reader to take the poem off the page and celebrate "the romance of the soul".
