Hardcover (4/26/2022)


Following the release of her micro-memoir, To Lose the Madness, and the TEDx Talk at Yale University based on her life, Browning returns from a six-year poetic silence with, Drive through the Night.
Raw, gritty, lonesome, and stunningly authentic--we pick up Browning's trail at mid-life as the poet reflects on her journey through her major relationships, both with lovers and self.
The map of these poems traces the poet's journey of overcoming and re-becoming while simultaneously set against the iconic backdrop of the American Southwest. In her words, "These poems and ponderings were written across the nights--while traveling the distance between who I was expected to become and who I authentically (irrevocably) am."
In Drive Through the Night, we follow the trail of an orphan-turned-vagabond who left behind the white picket fence for the open range and open road.
