Poetry. "With Lynne Thompson's new collection FRETWORK, one feels spurred on by the cherished care of the American emigrant story, which is to say, the buttressing and fortifying of the dream with all of its inglorious and joyous plots and twists. In mapping her supreme truths, imaginatively rendered here in measured lines, embedded in the familial tales, and felt music of her people, she embraces that light that emanates from language that aligns memories to myth. This is a masterful collection; one cannot help but surrender to the calling of its cadences that resonate widely into the 21st century."—Major Jackson
