Book of the Week (1/3/2022)

Ice Lands by Carol Westberg (David Robert Books, 2021).

The lyric poems in Ice Lands journey through regions of knowing and not knowing, alive to our mortal connections in this precarious world. According to poet Mark Cox, these poems navigate “the liminal intersections of the natural and human worlds,” and Betsy Sholl describes Ice Lands as “a luminous and stunning book, blending grief with wisdom and awe.” This book, as Lisa Russ Spaar says, “reads like a breviary for navigating the second decade of the 21 st century. The poems move with an insomniacal attentiveness…and put…a spur to the truth that ‘we’re all so much more than we know.’” -- Publisher's blurb
