The Way We Came In

SKU: 9781599488066

poems by Jack Johnson

In this collection’s elegiac title poem, an uncle, blind with glaucoma, gives driving directions for a visit to the family’s old farm, describing landmarks he can no longer see. That familiarity—the map in the mind’s eye—informs the movement of Jack Johnson’s The Way We Came In, paying attention to the guides who have led him, painting them in place, showing them real affection without affectation. It’s a good read. ~Joseph Green
