Synopsis

Spanning oceans and continents, language and the imagination, the unfathomable distances between people and their desires, Allison Davis's Poppy Seeds creates an "immaculate atlas." Here language is "broken...against the margin of the sea," and a word is a thing that can be "wash[ed] away." Here the body is both a lesson and a place with an edge you can drive to. The book "longs[s] for as long as Ohio rivers." Tangled between worlds and languages both old and new, our deepest emotions search for their roots, hoping to find a place to call home.
