Item Details

With intelligence and crystalline clarity, a chorus of female voices speaks through the poems in Her book, Éireann Lorsung's inspired second collection. From the poet who brought us Music For Landing Planes By, Éireann Lorsung's luminous voice is distilled through multiple unnamed female speakers in this, her second collection. Full of youth, wonder, and imagination, Her book crosses distances and generations to celebrate the lives of women, their individual and shared experiences, and the bonds that bring them together.
