This fourth collection, by the author of Ivory Cradle, unearths a hidden prehistoric world of art and art-makers. Anne Marie Macari delves deep within the earth, exploring the prehistoric caves of France and Spain, communing with the lives and art of those who once inhabited them. Writing from a variety of perspectives and in diverse voices, Macari connects us with a distant past, with "memory / stumbling into mineral stillness. . .a forgotten animal / across my shoulders."
