Summary

FROM THE WINNER OF THE PULITZER PRIZE FOR FICTION
TWICE WINNER OF THE WOMEN’S PRIZE FOR FICTION
THE MULTI-MILLION COPY BESTSELLING AUTHOR

The poems of How to Fly (in Ten Thousand Easy Lessons) find breath and lightness in the common business of living. Barbara Kingsolver‚Äôs generous collection is divided into thematic sections that loop and interweave to form a carefully patterned whole: a series of ‚ÄėHow to‚Äô poems that smartly balance tongue-in-cheek pragmatism with revelatory wisdom, a complicated yet affirmative family pilgrimage to Italy, cherished childhood memories, the perils and pleasures of being a [female] writer, elegies to lost loved ones, and elegies to the planet.

Blending resourcefulness and wonder with all the compassionate humanity of her prose, How to Fly will both delight Kingsolver’s devoted readership and welcome a host of new readers to her startling verse, while revealing an intimate side to her creative practice as yet unseen.
