Description: From the first poem, which takes up in a hot-air balloon over Chartres, to the last, in which a Russian cosmonaut welcomes an American colleague onto the Mir space station, Mary Jo's fourth collection draws the reader into the long distances of the imagination and the intimacies of the heart.

There are poignant poems about her own past and poems about real historical events; poems on family life, on film (from home movies to Hollywood romances), on travel in France, and on works of art (from a child's fingerpainted refrigerator magnet to Titian's last painting).

The book's centerpiece, "Alternating Currents", juxtaposes real historical figures like Alexander Graham Bell and Hellen Keller with their fictional contemporaries Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson, as each of them plumbs the mysteries of perception.

A splendid and engaging collection.
