About the Book

Winner of the 2022 Lexi Rudnitsky Editor's Choice Award

In Each Luminous Thing, her highly anticipated second collection of poetry, Stacie Cassarino maps the physical cadences of shifting landscapes while navigating desire, longing, loss, and love through the lens of motherhood.

From the boreal woods of Vermont to the coastal canyons of Southern California, Stacie Cassarino’s highly anticipated second collection of poetry maps the parallel tracks of walking through shifting terrains and becoming a mother. Cassarino patiently explores the physical cadences of landscapes as they are superimposed with internal and linguistic navigations of desire, longing, loss, and love. Stepping into the natural world with a lens on earthly objects encountered through the seasons, Cassarino holds both sorrow and praise for their ephemerality, and for the fragility of human connection, and in doing so reconciles her own sense of home. These are quiet, resilient poems, reflective of the urgent grasp to preserve and fill the silences that live around and within us; they affirm the presence of beauty through solid facets of nature and through the enthralled body that announces its love, even as things come in and out of focus.
