From the international best selling author of The Poisonwood Bible, The Lacuna and Unsheltered comes a revelatory collection of poetry. How to Fly (In The Thousand Easy Lessons) offers an emotionally rich reflection the practical, spiritual and the wild. The book is divided into thematic sections that loop and interweave to form a carefully patterned whole: a series of 'How to' poems that smartly balance tongue-in-cheek pragmatism with revelatory wisdom; a complicated yet affirmative family pilgrimage to Italy; cherished childhood memories; the perils and pleasures of being a (female) writer; elegies to lost loved ones; and elegies to the planet.
