Poetry off the Shelf: Crazy Brave
For more than 30 years, poet Joy Harjo, of Muskogee Nation heritage, has evoked the landscape of the Southwest with language steeped in American native cultures and visionary lyricism. Harjo’s many-faceted artistic life includes the poetry collections She Who Had Horse and the American Book Award–winning In Mad Love and War, as well as her new memoir Crazy Brave, and stints playing saxophone in Joy Harjo and the Arrow Dynamics Band.
