Poetry & Drama • 1.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

The title poem in this collection is a series of sonnets on one aspect of life during the pandemic. It's a good example of how Mary Jo Salter's work is grounded in the reality of our lives. Another poem, narrated by John Lee and Nicholas Guy Smith, puts Robinson Crusoe and Prospero, from Shakespeare's TEMPEST, on the same uncharted island, a marvelous act of imagination. The rest of the audiobook is wonderfully evoked by narrator Hillary Huber, although she has a tendency to run over the line breaks, sometimes obscuring Salter's subtle rhymes and interesting use of received forms. Still, Huber's delivery is generally well done and serves the poems well. D.M.H. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2022]
