Winner of the 2015 Perugia Press Prize
for a first or second book of poetry by a woman
 "Lawrence’s voice is pulled tight by oppositions: seeking and restless, but with a formal discipline and precision that shape and contain the poems’ appealing, subterranean energies. It’s a beautiful, thoughtfully-made book, showing this craftswoman at her finest." —Erin Belieu
SET IN THE TEMPERATE RAINFOREST of Southeast Alaska and the Pacific Coast, Grayling moves through the interior wilderness of a woman shaped by and inhabiting the rough country of her upbringing. The poet writes back into her circle a father who was both threat and savior, a sister who died too young, and herself as mother. Fish, plant life, the specific NW coastal landscape, memory, and experience weave together as Grayling straddles the faultline between past and present. Dorianne Laux calls the voice, “musical, magical, and skeptical.” The poems are short, and ask to be read slowly.

JENIFER  BROWNE  LAWRENCE lives in a small seaside town on Puget Sound, where she works as a civil engineering technician and edits Crab Creek Review. This is her second book.
