The poems of How to Fly (in Ten Thousand Easy Lessons) find breath and lightness in the common business of living, from the bestselling author
of The Poisonwood Bible.
Barbara Kingsolver’s generous collection is divided into thematic sections that loop and interweave to form a carefully patterned whole. A wonderful series of ‘How to’ poems that balance tongue-in-cheek pragmatism withrevelatory wisdom, a complicated yet affirmative family pilgrimage to Italy, cherished childhood memories, the perils and pleasures of being a [female] writer, elegies to lost loved ones, and elegies to the planet.
