In her elegant new collection, Alison Pick, a brilliant poet of sensuous moods, atmospheres, and dreams, explores the mystery concealed within the world we know and recognize. Always evocative, always alluring, her poems are not interested in mere events, but in the fabric inside the emotions that events can provoke. She writes of love, of leaving, of wandering, and of home - not necessarily in that order. With captivating language and shining imagery, her poems travel out through layers of landscape - residential, geographic, emotional, cerebral - creating a guidebook to the hidden, a sparkling tour through the lush and varied backcountry of human experience.
