About this Book

No matter how far life draws us from home, the tug of the familiar is always there, turning our eyes and our steps. In Moth—Alice Pettway’s second collection of poetry—the light of family and tradition is so bright it sometimes singes. These poems cast the lure of the unknown against the certainty of return, an emotionally tenuous landscape captured in Pettway’s spare language.
