This week marked the 70th birthday of poet and memoirist. In honor of the occasion, we offer this introductory reading guide to her work.
We’ve ordered this list in the order that we think the books should be read, and we offer a brief explanation of why each book was included. We’ve included excerpts of most the books via Google Books.
Kathleen Norris often identifies herself first as a poet, and although her prose works are better-known, it is worthwhile to read her poetry,
Journey includes poems from three previous books spanning thirty years, along with a generous selection of new work that continues her radically individual celebration of the sacredness of life.
