 About the Book 

In her new collection, Travis Lane speaks of the impermanent elation that a word, / like a live fish in water, sometimes shows. The language of Keeping Afloat flashes with wit, sensuousness, and a combination of faith (elation) and scepticismMoreIn her new collection, Travis Lane speaks of the impermanent elation that a word, / like a live fish in water, sometimes shows. The language of Keeping Afloat flashes with wit, sensuousness, and a combination of faith (elation) and scepticism (impermanence). In a time when too many poets favour fragments or the plainest syntax, its also a relief to read the aphorism To read the sentence is to resist fellowship, from a poet whose own style is welcoming and gymnastic in its joinings and its jumps. - Brian Bartlett
