Juggling its opposites with panache—heart and intellect, melancholy and zest, derangement and perspicacity—this varied poetry collection is a poignant meditation on love, memory, travel, and homecoming. Beginning with early stirrings of logical thought in a Paleolithic cave, the focus ranges through different times, places, and viewpoints before homing close in the last poems to recent personal family predicaments that are universal in their resonance. Restless in its craftsmanship, responsive in its moods, with graceful notes of wit and meaningful play, this book delights with the music of words, insights, and ideas.
