Burning cars, a young man speechless on a forest floor, girls lost far from home, and a lone lighthouse are images that surface in this latest poetry collection by Jane Draycott. A surreal eeriness exists in these tales of travelers passing along their ways, in the darkness, in transit, hoping for safe passage through unknown territory. Traveling many paths and byways itself, the poetry is imagined with what Sean O’Brien describes as Draycott’s “quizzical, exultant, exact music.”
