Crossings: A Record of Travel

by Michael Jennings

"Whether he locates himself in the stark Iranian deserts, or the filigreed, ornate streets of his boyhood New Orleans, or in the wildest landscapes of our primal imagination, Michael Jennings strips to the core in a voice that embodies the rhythms of cycles, migrations, seasons, deaths and rebirths."

—Gregory Djanikian
