Inspired by working at the Royal Ontario Museum, gifted poet Nina Berkhout spins a catastrophic yet enduring tale of love set amidst the chaos of assembling a blindingly white museum display on the Hindenburg Zeppelin. Composed in poetic verse, This Way the Road masterfully interweaves the tumultuous relationship of Helen and Jules with glistening fragments of Greek mythology and modern history.
