Poetry. Saunier takes us home where we use a bandsaw to do battle with a Smithfield ham, prepare for a road trip to an unknown sea town where a dearly beloved will nurse a tumor, and where death patiently reads The New York Times. TIPS FOR DOMESTIC TRAVEL is an elegy, but it's also a guide for navigating the domestic lands of the childhood home, the body, and the objects that remain.
