One Shapely Thing: Poems and Journals
Clearly demonstrating how her poetry is drawn from personal experience, this bold and innovative collection of new poems exemplifies characteristic themes of her work: personal responsibility, social justice, and living in the natural world. Additionally, two prose journals—one written in the month following September 11, while her husband worked at the United Nations in New York City, and the second written while they were in Geneva in early 2002 when the U.S. response to September 11 was taking shape—further explore these themes and her response to these events.
