Summary

Lucy / your secret book / that you leaned over and wrote just in the dirt - / Not having to have an ending / Not having to last. . . .

And so begins Jean Valentine's provocative new work, Lucy , a poem that pays homage to the three million-year-old skeleton of the earliest known hominid. With a deep sense of gratitude and profound longing, this poem celebrates the creative power of the female by introducing us to one of our oldest human ancestors. In a dreamlike and often fractured syntax that is vintage Valentine, Lucy, the 'wildgood mother' of our species, can once again be heard.
