This is written as a gathering of journal entries, poems, grocery lists, newspaper articles, etc., as a middle aged woman looking back at her younger days - love, smuggling refugees, domestic violence, sexual abuse... The work reads more like a poem throughout, and some of the lines are so emotive that I found myself rereading them over and over again... One line said the rain sounded like pinon nuts being poured into a mason jar... Isn't that just amazing?
