Book Review ~ Barbara Rockman’s ‘to cleave’

Another pass-it-on from my work at Nimrod: an earlier review of Barbara Rockman’s collection to cleave. Rockman’s work is lyric as well as substantive: she writes with equal observation about birds, hands, and a marriage of years.

Here you’ll find a lovely respite from today’s politics, tomorrow’s worries, yesterday’s guilt. Enjoy! (I certainly did.)
