"This work is unlike any other, in its range of rich, conjuring imagery and its dexterity, its smart voice. Carroll-Hackett doesn’t spare us—but doesn’t save us—she draws a blueprint of power and class with her unflinching pivot: matter-of-fact and tender." —Jan Beatty

Birdsong brings relief

to my longing

I’m just as ecstatic as they are,

but with nothing to say!

Please universal soul, practice

some song or something through me!

From Essential Rumi by Coleman Barks
