Rate this:

A new and resplendent collection by Linda Gregg, whose poems "have the elegance of Greek statuary and the good-humored poise of haiku" ( Poetry )

I finally fell in love with all of it:
dirt, silence, rock and far views.
It's strange that my heart is as full
now as my desire was then.
--from "Arriving Again and Again Without Noticing"

In one poem in this emotional and spiritual collection, Linda Gregg asks, "It is clear why love / took me to the shore of death, / but why did it bring me back?" In the Middle Distance , Gregg's sixth book, explores up to and beyond the crossroads of devastation and desire. There, she finds not only survival but also
salvation--hard-won, resilient, and meaningful.

This collection brings Gregg's passion and intensity together with a new wisdom and vitality that is unmistakably original.
