A History of Kindness
Author: Linda Hogan
Publisher: Torrey House Press (2020)
Throughout this clear–eyed collection, Hogan tenderly excavates how history instructs the present, and envisions a future alive with hope for a healthy and sustainable world that now wavers between loss and survival.
"Linda Hogan is one of the most important environmental writers of our time. In A History of Kindness, she weaves themes of the body, family, ecology, and animals into a spiral that traverses time and space. In this troubled and dark world, I am grateful for the wisdom, light, and love found in these poems.”
–Craig Santos Perez
“Linda Hogan's new collection speaks to us the way a trusted friend might, inviting you to take warmth by the hearth. Her verses teach us how to live with dignity in a world bent on destruction and show why it is important to fight for the planet.”
