Publisher Marketing: Poems of wayfaring and wayfinding, recovery and discovery, from “one of the best poets of his generation” (Elizabeth Lund, Washington Post).

In 2018, acclaimed poet Todd Boss sold his belongings and began to circle the globe in a series of consecutive housesits. Reeling from marital, parental, and societal losses, Boss risks everything to be at one with the world. These poems conjure Spanish dust, English rain, French moss, Arizona cliffs, and Hungarian light, ringing all the while with timeless humor and wisdom. As much a commentary on modern-day America as a personal history replete with grief, Someday the Plan of a Town is a sensual, intellectual, and arrestingly musical map of one nomadic troubadour’s journey to self.
