Hugging the yellow line, by Betsy Turcot, is the story of one woman’s journey to dust off a break-up and reclaim her happiness. Dividing everything in two, she sells her possessions and buys a motorcycle. She carries what she has left in Gearsacks and sets off of an adventure across the United States. In between her search for good food, wine and jazz, she finds a reason to get off her bike and stay a while.
With echoes of Dorothy Porter, Hugging the yellow line is a collection of narrative poems that link the traditional and the contemporary. It is seasoned with rhyme, alliteration and pantoum. It is where poetry meets rhythm and blues.
