Poetry. The author of three previous poetry collections continues her luminous and bittersweet narrative style. "Robin Chapman is a poetic voice you can settle into, learn from, come to know and trust. Whether she is writing of her childhood in a nuclear boom town or her now grown children or the passions and pleasures of nature, Chapman draws you into her world with the deftest of gestures and the surest of language. THE WAY IN is a generous book, full of life, and a true pleasure to read"—Jesse Lee Kercheval.
