About Now Do You Know Where You Are

Love and grief guide Dana Levin in her new book exploring an increasingly unsettling America after the 2016 election, on both national and personal levels.

Dana Levin's fifth collection is a brave and perceptive companion, walking with the reader through the disorientations of personal and collective transformation. Now Do You Know Where You Are investigates how great change calls the soul out of the old lyric, "to be a messenger--to record whatever wanted to stream through." Levin works in a variety of forms, calling on beloveds and ancestors, great thinkers and religions--convened by Levin's own spun-of-light wisdom and intellectual hospitality--balancing clear-eyed forensics of the past with vatic knowledge of the future. "So many bodies a soul has to press through: personal, familial, regional, national, global, planetary, cosmic-- // 'Now do you know where you are?'"
