Description

These poems featuring the brilliant, the misfit, and the music of the stars summon us into the heart of what it means to be human and passionate on this wild ride we call life on Earth. Mileva Einstein, the forgotten genius; Josef Stalin's only daughter, as she flies off to the US; Robert Schumann, composing symphonies from an asylum; the view from Mars; horses sensing a predator; the road toward forgiveness - in this gathering of the factual and fantastical, the lyrical and wise, a rich humanity steps forth. Pamela Porter brings her unique sensibilities, combined with an acute intelligence, a sensuous lyricism, as well as a serious wit to the poems in this collection - all of which asks: How did you get here, and how will you get home?
