In the earnest and beautiful Travel Notes from the River Styx, Susanna Lang peers into the tiny mirrors of a river’s current, the mirror her father cannot see himself in, the rearview mirror in which she spies sand hill cranes on an afternoon drive, “their knobby legs of… resurrection” as she interrogates the natural and, at times, unnatural world. The result is a collection of double images.... As clear in its language as it is rich in argument, there’s something for everyone in Travel Notes, for travelers are exactly what this poet proclaims we are.”
