These lyrical poems map one woman's life after her exodus from a twenty year marriage. Pelman takes this all-too-common sorrow and places it in the natural world, as if only juncos, mice, crickets and robins can understand. The poems trace a reconstruction of self from a narrow, limited space through a metaphorical desert towards joy.
