New Tracks, Night Falling by by Jeanne Murray Walker

Mixed Media

For Jeanne Murray Walker, poetry is puzzling but necessary. In good poems, she says, “you can hear a human voice talking to you.” New Tracks, Night Falling is full of Walker’s voice, picking a path that leads the reader to mystery. Walker traces her responses to 9/11, readings from Genesis, and near-collisions on the highway in order to confront her confusion with the world. She searches out tracks that lead her, and us, to “places that are holy.” (Eerdmans)
