In Doubtful Harbor, Idris Anderson turns wandering into art. From large landscapes to the minutest details, she seeks with each poem to convey the world more clearly, acutely, and exquisitely. As she meditates on indelible moments with intimate others, friends, and strangers, she teases from these encounters their elusive connections and disconnections. As Sherod Santos wrote when selecting the book for the Hollis Summers Poetry Prize, "These are not the journeys of a tourist, but of a wandering solitaire whose purpose is not to maintain a travelogue, but to lose herself in the otherness of her surroundings."

Doubt is itself a driving force here, an engine of both questing and questioning. As exact as Anderson's eye is, her poems draw energy from ambiguity as she renders interior and exterior landscapes-foreign and domestic, lovely and littered, familiar and strange.
