In Clay and Star, Romanian poet Liliana Maria Ursu captures with breathtaking precision the convergence of the sacred with the mundane. Whether anchored in Sibiu, Visby, Skala, or San Francisco, they both honor and transcend place and time as they search obsessively for essence, truths, self-knowledge, and the divine within.
