We Are the Bus travels the world in 42 poems—from Hat Island in Puget Sound to Oaxaca’s zocalo to the steps of St. Peter’s Basilica. In language simple, precise, and musical, the poems revisit the complexities of growing up and moving on. We Are the Bus tells stories full of people—telescope makers and fisherman, neighbors, travelers and family, high divers and tired pilgrims, Norwegian horseshoe players and American mothers-in-law. Vivid details and surprising events give authority to the language as each poem moves from memory and observation toward clarity and song.

About the Author:

JAMES MCKEAN, born in Seattle, completed an M.F.A. and Ph.D. at the University of Iowa. His publications include two books of poems, Headlong and Tree of Heaven, and a book of essays: Home Stand Growing up In Sports. McKean now teaches for the Queens University Low Residency M.F.A. program in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Review:

"We Are the Bus is full of the hubbub of the real world. In a deeply compelling voice, unflinching and compassionate, James McKean explores in the complexities of time and relationships the painful mysteries of personal identity. This is a strong book that examines in the considered moment the possibility of meaning in our lives."—David Bottoms, Series Final Judge



“These poems are palpable pleasure. I love the way Jim McKean sees and sings the lives of so many people. ‘There’s singing in the wind’ and in these pages, as they pull you in.”—Naomi Shihab Nye
