In Book of Places, Yvonne Blomer invites us along for a cycling journey spanning across decades and countries. From a solitary traffic controller on a lonely Nevada highway, to the quizzical regulars of a dodgy pub in the UK, we follow Blomer’s meandering path through poetic snapshots of the figures and sights that populate it. This updated 10th anniversary edition also features an expanded collection of poems, integrating suites of meditations on childhood, and more recent poems reflecting on the ever-developing journey of life. The Book of Places invites us along for a grand adventure, but always leads us home.

Praise for Book of Places

Serious, playful, and governed by the eye’s apprehension of the familiar as well as the shockingly new, Yvonne Blomer’s Book of Places takes us cycling through Asian landscapes, Britain’s stone cathedrals, and the inimate landmarks of home, where these poems accumulate earthly wonders: rivers and rain, animals, leaves, bamboo’s hollow knock against stone. She drops the pebble of a word into a mirror pool, and its ripples expand into the still pond of the reader’s mind.Pamela Porter, author of Likely Stories
