In this Book

summary
Bernard A. Booker, wry old Maine codger and unofficial mayor of Ell Pond, is the subject of Booker's Point, an oral history-inspired portrait-in-verse. Weaving storytelling, natural history, and the poetry of place, the collection evokes the sensibility of rural New England and the pleasures of a good story. "Grumbling is subtle, conjures the natural world richly and convincingly, and her subject matter is surprising and intriguing. I also admire how she handles meter."—Morri Creech, judge and author of Sleep of Reason
