duction to his book contains some errors and is often oversimpliÞed, but Haiku: This Other Wo r l d is an outstanding addition to Wright Õs literary and humanist achievements Ña beacon to that Òother world,Ó masterful and free. Like remembering, The hills are dim and distant In the winter air. l ez a lo w i t z Journey Cake by Tam Lin Neville. Kansas City: BkMk Press, 1 998. 75 pages, paper $11 .95. Amid the vivid images of ßowers and ßames found in Tam Lin NevilleÕs Þrst full- length collection, Journey Cake, theater i mager y appears prominently. I n fact, many of her poems read like stage directions for one-act morality plays. In Ò The UnderstudyÕs Hand,Ó we see a man devoted to a role he will never play, that of the hero who ÒdoesnÕt understand his world / and wants to Þnd someone who does / but his shoes are worn out, there is no more bread.Ó Between acts, the understudy Òrepairs the heroÕs shoes and puts crusts in his pack ,Ó much as Neville herself pro - vides readers with all they need in order to make the mental journey to the place
