An inviting volume of prose, 18 poems in all, about love and loss in the modern world. Woman Looking Down is like a meander through city streets and sidewalks- a little scratchy, pungent – but true, upright, and fortifying in the face of gravity – the kind that sticks us to the earth. Romantic, bold, it takes a strong look at love and loss and articulates with an offbeat seductiveness what we already know instinctively, that the complicated navigations of living are simply the best roads of life. A good read for every lover of poetry.
Readers will gain a firsthand look at the peaks and valleys of this prophet’s life and how it connects to Christian living today.From the Trade Paperback edition.
