Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Praise for History and Geography:

"Barrington's history, like Lowell's, is intensely personal; her geography, like Bishop's, extracts the familiar from the exotic and the exotic from the familiar."-The Nation

"She engages wittily with cultural differences . . . and gives a prominent place to what Elizabeth Bishop, of whom her writing sometimes reminds me, called 'questions of travel.'"-The Women's Review of Books

"Written in a voice at once steadfastly bold and gently intimate . . . Barrington demonstrates control of her material, transforming volatile feelings and almost unspeakable observations into cogent, vigorous poetry."-Publishers Weekly

Judith Barrington's memoir, Lifesaving, won the Lambda Award. She lives in Portland, Oregon.
