Threading Light takes us down prairie roads, to the shores of the East Coast, into Asian market stalls, to the site of the Titanic graves and the kitchen tables of poets, to bring us back whole, refreshed in our understanding about loss, home, and the heart of poetry. In Neilsen Glenn's lyrical language - language that George Elliott Clarke has called "bordering on the sacred" — we explore loss, grief, and the paths that lead us into writing and community. A blend of memoir, observation, wit, and lament, this book is a trickster, layering the philosophical, the spiritual, the literary, and the personal in ways that both challenge and comfort us, and leave us filled with hope.
