TO THE WREN by Jane Mead received a starred review from Publishers Weekly

“With lyric candor and emotional precision, Mead offers her family history, meditations on loss and madness, and the landscape of California wine country in this collected volume. . . . The natural world, in its bounty and brutality, is a grounding force for Mead, a reminder of a time scale beyond the human span. In her commitment to representing experience faithfully, Mead engages fundamental questions about the nature of knowing."
