About the Book



Following the release of her micro-memoir, To Lose the Madness, and the TEDx Talk at Yale University based on her life, Browning returns from a six-year poetic silence with Drive through the Night--a collection following the trail of this orphan-turned-vagabond who left behind the white picket fence for the open range and open road.



Book Synopsis



Following the release of her micro-memoir, To Lose the Madness, and the TEDx Talk at Yale University based on her life, Browning returns from a six-year poetic silence with, Drive through the Night.


Raw, gritty, lonesome, and stunningly authentic--we pick up Browning's trail at mid-life as the poet reflects on her journey through her major relationships, both with lovers and self.


The map of these poems traces the poet's journey of overcoming and re-becoming while simultaneously set against the iconic backdrop of the American Southwest. In her words, "These poems and ponderings were written across the nights--while traveling the distance between who I was expected to become and who I authentically (irrevocably) am."


In Drive Through the Night, we follow the trail of an orphan-turned-vagabond who left behind the white picket fence for the open range and open road.



Review Quotes




In Drive Through the Night, L.M. Browning, with incredible bravery and breathtaking vulnerability, offers the wisdom she has gained through surviving to write about what the doctors call "mental illness." These poems were written as Browning traveled across North America in search of her "true north," her authentic self. It's a journey few of us take and even fewer of us possess the courage to write openly about once the journey is finished. Browning possesses that courage. And, even more impressively, she possesses the skill to bolster hearts on the verge of taking their own journeys to find true north. In Browning's poetry, we find our most stalwart allies in the search for the authentic self: the land, those countless creatures we share the land with, and those rare humans who have endeavored to find their authentic selves - rare humans like Browning. She calls this collection "poetic field notes on taming, reclaiming & becoming wild." Browning urges us all to become wild again. And, Drive Through the Night shows us how we can begin to do that.


--Will Falk, author of How Dams Fall



"L.M. Browning's Drive Through the Night is an intensely beautiful exploration of this planet we call home and her own dark night of the soul. As we follow this speaker to different landscapes all across the country, the accompanying images and poems bring to life scenes of loss, joy, and a quiet yet fierce rebirth of the wounded spirit. This book is for any survivor seeking to 'return to the wild . . . and stand this new ground' inside themselves."


--James Crews, Poet and Editor of The Path to Kindness: Poems of Connection & Joy



"Through photographs, poems, and location pins, Browning traverses trauma. We follow her journey through fractured relationships, grief, a suicide attempt-and ultimately healing. As she learns to return to herself, she is our guiding light. Exquisitely delicate and lyrical, Drive Through The Night challenges us to pick up the pieces of ourselves, stand new ground, and thrust ourselves into the wild ahead."


--Caitlin Garvey, author of The Mourning Report
