About Wild Flight (Now Available in Paperback):
Soaring across extensive terrain, from the working world of Detroit to American suburbia and pop culture, from the European landscape of World War II to present-day Iraq, Christine opens her personal world to the world at large. In poems that explore the historical, social, and scientific, as well as the poignant and humorous, Christine relishes life’s juxtapositions.
