Description

A book of poems that's as unpredictable as the seasons that guide it, Weathervane is part eco-tourism, part domestic nocturne, and part tempest. In a shifting world, Mark Sampson resounds like a modern Zeus, advising his readers to “wear galoshes, / even if it doesn?t rain.? Weathervane is an intensely personal, alchemical debut from an accomplished new voice.
