Salt Water is a vital current, murky at times, often clear, which reveals the depths of earth and irrigates the human heart. It is a current, like blood, which has circulated through California, Austria, London, Beirut and elsewhere—so the journey of this wonderful collection is constructed—and it is fitting that it wends its way to Paris, where I am, that it soothes and eases my wounds, because Salt Water is a work of loss and restoration . . . a potent work on the melancholy of the world, and of countries traversed that are as much geographical as interior: childhood, fear, solitude, motherhood.

At its core, Salt Water is a river of love. At once turbulent and still. Indispensable for those who seek to navigate life.
