questions for water

Virginia Crawford, MLitt 1995

Questions for Water brings Crawford’s lyrical voice and intimate perspective to the challenges faced by twenty-first century families, America, and the world. Whether she's exploring the fires that raged in Australia, racial injustices embedded within the American legal system, or the search for a gun hidden within her son’s Baltimore school, Crawford guides us all safely beyond the reach of dark times as she articulates her own fears.

In the luminous title poem, she reaches simultaneously back to her family’s immigrant experience and outward to the immigrant experiences that define America today.
