For the first time in many years, Barbara Kingsolver, famed author of The Poisonwood Bible, talks directly to Canadians about her latest book, in this case, a slim and beautiful collection of poems, How to Fly (In Ten Thousand Easy Lessons), which demonstrates again her mastery over words and ideas.

 

At once funny and moving, clever and bold, these poems show us everything from how to rent a beach house to how to swim in the Bay of Naples to how to spend an afternoon with a postman and though they weren’t written with current events at front of mind, there is much here that speaks to us in the latter part of 2020 as societies teeter on the possibility of new rounds of quarantining and self-isolation.

 

Barbara Kingsolver talks with CBC arts journalist, Aparita Bhandari, about her career, her poetry and what we can all learn about the lessons life continues to teach us.
