About the Book
Joyride is a powerful collection of poems suffused with love, loss and redemption. Crafted in simple, lyrical language with a music all its own, the poems sing stories that are at once mysterious and accessible. The natural imagery and conversational tone of Flanders’ voice gives us the feeling of overhearing secrets that we understand to be our own. Some of the deeper questions of what it means to be human find expression here, too, as Flanders mines the ordinary of the everyday for extraordinary gifts of insight and epiphany. There is a compelling tension of opposites in this work - sadness and joy, rage and celebration, beauty and dirt.
Though quite distinct from her lyrics for internationally acclaimed recording artist October Project, these poems do share some common elements of theme and voice with Flanders' other work.
