About the Author
"With signature wit, word-wariness, and warmth, Jeanine Hathaway brings us a new song in the lineage of Dickinson, Moore, and Bishop--a brilliant, cool surface that offers, even so, a profound, subterranean heat, evincing her continuing faithfulness to the embodied spirit that wishes to save us all. May it be blessed."
--Scott Cairns, author of Anaphora
"Soon after you open this dazzling book, you begin to feel it was written precisely and only to you. Not that the poems are confessional--they're not--but their witty, antic wordplay and their music accumulate until they feel like a secret language between the writer and the reader. These poems are urgent. Their passion makes me see stitches, saints, Paris--almost everything--in a whole new way, teaching questions that may, in the end, be more significant than answers."
--Jeanne Murray Walker, author of Pilgrim, You Find the Path by Walking
"Jeanine Hathaway is the kind of religious poet I deeply admire--earthy, worldly, and of this world, a writer who works inside the contradictions of division and reconciliation, doubt and faith; but she is first and foremost a poet who knows her trade. Hathaway never takes herself too seriously and yet she is taken by her subject matter and by the serious question she has deeply lived--just how exactly are we being asked to live our lives?"
