'Honest, passionate, and exhilarating, Janine Pommy Vega brings her own voice to the Beat pilgrimage. She is changed by her journey through the world, and she changes the world through her words' - American Book Review

In this, her first collection since the career-spanning Mad Dogs of Trieste (2000), Janine Pommy Vega writes with quiet command of her life and times and of a shared American present. Here are protests against the depravities of the prison system and the Washington war machine - political poems that are fierce yet never strident and that always begin in closely observed human particulars. Here too are tender lyrics about family, lovers, and friends; celebrations of the natural and domestic worlds of upstate New York; and remarkably vivid letters home from spiritual sojourns through Italy, Germany, and the former Yugoslavia.

'Vega's poems reflect a deeply felt and aching knowledge', wrote Publishers Weekly of her previous collection. 'They 'go' (as Kerouac said) their own patient, unadorned, and dignified way'.
