Dear Weather Ghost (Stahlecker Selections) (Paperback)
Built around an epistolary sequence, “The Weather Ghost Letters,” this collection presents images—animals, the elements, landscapes—as vehicles for exploring exile. “A road drifts all over our country,” Ginsburg writes, and the speakers of these poems drift, too—spiritually and physically. We experience this unmoored journey through tight, lyrical pieces that use simple, often coy language.
