Coastal by Jane Duran
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


"Coastal" is about endings and beginnings. Jane Duran's poems explore that transforming, constantly shifting overlap in what we remember and what we experience now. But this coastal place of the mind is also geographical: it is childhood in New England, adolescence in Chile, it is Algeria today. Themes of losing and finding, releasing and holding run through the whole collection, from poems about the last years of her mother's life, to a sequence celebrating her son and motherhood.
