The liminal strip that divides the highway from the surrounding land is called a wayside. Often thick with wildflowers and insects, it’s a natural space that coexists with traffic and exhaust.
In Dividing the Wayside, Haysom likewise navigates the territory in between. Her voice is passionate and charming, her language precise and musical.
Praise for Dividing the Wayside
“Jenny Haysom’s ear is maturely attuned, her craft deftly managed, her poems loaded with wry, remarkable metaphors, allusions, homages, puns, eclectic observations, and moments of delicate feeling. Dividing the Wayside is a seasoned and exceptional début.”—Steven Heighton
