Synopsis

By turns comic and elegiac, full of signs and portents,Vermont Exit Ramps IItakes readers on a physical and emotional journey through the Green Mountain State.Combining a reporters instincts with a poets eyes and ears, Shepard invites the reader, exit ramp by exit ramp, to wander through the surroundingramplands,towns, and hilltop farms and to discover historical realities and imagined alternatives. Through his lyrical reportage, Shepard incorporates found materialroad signage and weather reports, birdcalls and mammal-chatter, Chinese fortune cookies and scrambled anagrams, snippets of literary texts and local pamphletsinto poems that are as layered as the natural and human history that make up contemporary Vermont. This virtuosic performance will serve as a spirited primer for first-time visitors while making long-time Vermonters see the land they thought they knew with fresh eyes.
