If you use 'AND' between two words, then both of those words will be present in the search results.
ex: Harry AND Potter will return results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'OR' between two words, then bth of those words may or may not be present in the search results.
ex: Harry OR Potter will return results with just 'Harry', results with just 'Potter' and results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.

ex: Pot*er will return results with words starting with 'Pot' and ending in 'er'. In this case, 'Potter' will be a match.
Through Jo Langdon's gaze, the ordinary world is transformed into a snow globe of wondrous possibility. The city and its objects move impressionistically, summer bodies dissemble, and daily routines take on an uncanny glow. Domestic realities are glimpsed or suggested, small histories reveal a chiaroscuro of darkness and light.
Deftly extending the visual sensibility of late modernists like Barbara Guest and Veronica Forrest-Thomson, Glass Life draws together a vivid sensibility with observations that are both sharply astute and powerfully intimate. This second, major collection confirms Langdon as a compelling force in contemporary poetry.

With wit and shimmering precision Jo Langdon's poems connect the surreal, imagined world to what is felt. Her music is spare, wounding, hypnotic.

Jo Langdon shows us the world in a snow-dome sequence. In these delicate poems, we observe how the subtleties and shifts of our interior lives merge with the changing qualities of light or weather. This is what she gifts us: an insight into how exquisitely we are held by the world's spaces.
