Western Motel, by Wendy Drexler: a review
In bright detailed glimpses, Wendy Drexler shows us two landscapes: the Western landscape in which she grew up, and the terrain of her marriage, divorce, and falling in love again.
My favorite section is the thread of poems entitled "Gas Stations, Drive-Ins, The Bright Motels." My favorite single poem is "What Distance Brings." I know Wendy and her family personally, and other readers may close the book and think they do too.
