Description


Clothesline Religion chronicles twenty years worth of adventures in the life of an artist as young single mother. Megan Buchanan, a poet and professional dancer, gave birth to a daughter at 22, lived abroad in Ireland and France, and came back home again to Southern California and the mountains of the Southwest. This debut poetry collection spans wild open roads, backyard vegetable gardens, Irish pubs, country dance halls, Vermont screen-porches, midnight river valleys, artist studios, and the world of waking dreams. Buchanan's poems offer fierce evidence of what she calls "ordinary magic" —and what others might call mindfulness—discovering gratitude, the path of recovery, and a mother's deep joy.
