Overview

Dark. Sweet. offers readers the sweep of LindaHogan's work—environmental and spiritual concerns, her Chickasaw heritage—in spare, elemental, visionary language.

From "Those Who Thunder":

Those who thunder
have dark hair
and red throw rugs.
They burn paper in bathroom sinks.
Their voices refuse to suffer
and their silences know the way
straight to the heart;
it's bus route number eight.

Often a “new and selected” volume largely comprises the “selected” and merely hints at the material the writer is currently composing. In Dark. Sweet., however, we’re treated to an entire new body of work, 120 pages of her continuing journey of making peace with the unjust, of her love affair with life.
