JOURNEY BREAD is a wide-ranging retrospective – fierce, joyous, witty, and radiant – by a master of voice and craft. Like the journey cake carried through the mountains by the poet’s forebears, it is also waybread, lembas, giving heart in dark times. And it is the viaticum, the bread on the tongue of the dying, as the poet begins the last stage of her journey with a final letting go of what has been, to make space for whatever is to come.
