These poems probe the definition of Motherland. Shara McCallum homogenizes childhood memories of her native Jamaica with a revised understanding of danger and corruption, teasing out notions of history, language, motherhood, rupture, memory, and identity. She weaves new cloth of oral tradition, struggling to arrange a comfort zone within the foreign manufactures of suburbia. Hers is the skilled music of a master.

About the Author:

Shara McCallum is the author of Song of Thieves (University of Pittsburgh Press, 2003) and The Water Between Us (University of Pittsburgh Press, 1999).

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

From "From the Book of Mothers":

What is separation's geography?

The mother's body is the country


of our earliest memory, the soil

from which we are formed.


Our lives are an arc of flight:

away, toward, away.
