About this title


The poems in Journey Cake describe both metaphysical and actual travels. Tam Lin Neville spent a year living in China, out of which experience many of these poems came. Other poems grew out of travels of the mind-there are several poems in which folk figures set out in search of a spirit they glimpse but cannot find in their earthbound lives--and the last section of the book comes home to chronicle the lives of people in small-town America.

From the Back Cover:

"What I'm most drawn to in Tam Lin Neville's work is how curiously solitary it is, deeply meditative but never self-absorbed. These poems disturb and comfort. The mix is surprising and lovely." --Marianne Boruch

"[Neville] draws from folk literature a particular love of the humble, the singular, the lonely, as if they speak most accurately of the soul. Her poems span time and culture, taking in ancient and modern China and pioneer America. But in whatever setting, her characters, and especially her women, quietly insist on their dignity and independence. The poems in Journey Cake are profoundly original in their way of being moral, mysterious and intimate all at once." --Betsy Sholl

"Gravity and Grace might be another title for this, Tam Lin Neville's first full-length collection of poems, as it has Simone Weil's fierce attention to the way the spirit moves and accrues. Journey Cake is wide-awake, darkened by time and experience, and finally triumphant. I for one am grateful for the journey." --Tom Andrews
