Tracing the Curve, by Ariana Moulton
Ariana Moulton’s Tracing the Curve draws on the poet’s deep connection to the spaces in and around her—Chicago, Vermont, the shores of Lake Michigan—and her natural anxieties as a woman, mother, and teacher. The essential voice in each poem ranges from truly heartbreaking to simply joyous.
Tracing the Curve, Moulton’s debut collection, will take you under damp viaducts, above a single ruby maple leaf, and into the questions that COVID-19 has created in all of us. Her words aim to open windows of the heart while begging questions of our world that need to be asked.
