Poetry. "ONE ISLAND is an earthy, delightfully vibrant collection by a fine new poet, full of sacred and profane registers. Gretchen Pratt's poems are full of tribes and communities, stories and landscapes from our recognizably shared world. An openness of feeling is jazzily counterpointed by the thousand apprehended things of the world. What we get in the end is a cosmos in which selfhood and world are at play with each other, recombining and changing in encounter after encounter"—Tony Hoagland.
