Poetry. Women's Studies. "In Barbara Tomash's exquisite new book, ARBOREAL, a narrator leads us through a set of deep questions about life and death and all that is in between... This is a poetry that burrows deeply into the earth, the body... ARBOREAL takes us to mysterious places but never leaves us stranded. 'What is this method we call language?' the book asks. The answer is no one answer but the method of this narrator whose many voices and investigations provide the materials of the world, matter exhumed and made visible in the larger visibility of what is unseen."—Maxine Chernoff
