Hugging The Jukebox
Naomi Shihab Nye
There is the strength of folk wisdom in these poems: an adherence to the undersides of things that puts one in mind of sod houses and Navajo hogans. Central to the poet’s vision is warmth and a generous hugging of reality…Here is a poet who knows what happiness is. She has produced that rare thing, a book of genuine distinction that is also truly endearing.
