Heartbreak and faith are the twin strands threading through Caduceus by Sørina Higgins: a book of voices, messages, personas, layered texts, ancient tales, and contemporary feeling. Higgins tries on many roles to express dilemmas of her own, of her loved ones, or of her times. This book is endorsed by three superstar poets. Jeanne Murray Walker says: "she has written a musical, heartbreaking, timely and timeless book.” Luci Shaw writes: "Here is a poet of a deep, dissecting and penetrating faith.” And Dana Gioia states: “Sørina Higgins is an ambitious, young poet who defies easy classification. Her work embraces the lyric and the narrative, the sexy and the sacred. Hers is a capacious imagination trying to make sense of a world full of both heartbreak and wonder which she views with a tough-minded clarity and vast compassion.”
