A writer of great acuity, familiar with the depths and moods that are part of life, Roberson shares people and places that will linger like old leaves stuck to a shoe or cigarette smoke caught in your clothes.Much of the material for this collection was inspired by her driving hours daily on Interstate-81 in Virginia to and from two different jobs at juvenile correction centers where she was a teacher.

Where many of us might glance out the car window and see a tumbled-down barn, an old horse in a field, an old farmhouse about to be torn down, a highway convenience store, or an old motel, Roberson sees stories.Damaged, odd, and forgotten people, some tucked away in Lake Forest mansions, some hiding in damp basements near an interstate, fill her poems and tales. A beautiful, haunting slice of Americana.
