Coming Into History

“What an exhilarating book this is, full of passions and wit.  Any reader who thinks nothing more can be said about birth and a child’s new life has a stunning surprise coming.  Jeanne Murray Walker’s poems connect us with our past and our future; they shower us with the riches of the world.”
Lisel Mueller

“With Coming into History Jeanne Murray Walker takes her place among the best poets of her generation.  Her fecund and generous imagination embraces the commonplace and the bizarre with empathy and dramatic power.”
-Daniel Hoffman
