Summary: From the publisher's website:
Stations of the Lost is about how we seek to find places for ourselves in landscapes and situations that seem to belong to others. In language playful, extravagant, somber and meditative, yet always plainspoken and heartfelt, the quandaries of our double selves are exploredâ€”both â€œlonging/and belonging.â€ The geographic range takes us from urban landscapes, across borders of one kind or another, to the remote regions which bring us closer to our homes. At times irreverent and light-hearted, the collection is also a meditation on lossâ€™s singular presence in our lives.
