Riassunto: An anthology of poems celebrates the feelings of home and explores such settings as Anne Frank's house in Amsterdam, a post office in Poland, a safe haven in Nicaragua, and a Texas ranch.
From School Library Journal:
Grade 8 Up-Everything from strewn litter to last season's maple leaves can remind one of "home," wherever that may be. But even the title of Janeczko's latest anthology is telling-through these poems readers learn not where home is, but where it begins. That sense of home is at the heart of these tightly rendered, carefully selected, and thoughtfully arranged selections. Some reminiscences are pleasant, warm, and joyful. Others express the cynicism, dismay, or discomfort of remembering the past. All are well crafted and quite mature in viewpoint. The material things that make a home-porches, closets, and country roads-are well visited, as are the faces and memories. Here is a dirty service station, a graveyard, disappearing farms, and even a Polish post office. These diverse locales fit the universal theme of the book and, as he usually does, Janeczko skillfully organizes the volume to reap the most impact from each poem. Once again, he has collected gems from around the world, representing the best of contemporary poetry. His experience and trained eye and ear deliver nothing less than unqualified realism. Both the painful and joyous memories and definitions of home offer this volume its power.
