[poems]Paperback - 2009
The second collection by award-winning poet Joanna Rawson, whose intense language recalls the prose of Cormac McCarthy' (Kirkus). A man's sister sews him into a bus seat. Stowaway immigrants suffocate in a crowded boxcar. The first female suicide bomber passes through a checkpoint. Joanna Rawson's Unrest shows the fervent, if not desperate, side of humanity pressed to the limits. With a resonant lyricism and profound beauty, here is the voice of a poet at one moment in contemplation and at the next in emotional outcry.'
