Summary
Vagabondage is a book of poems tracking a year in the life of a single woman - and a writer to boot - who sells her house when she turns 50 to live in a campervan. It's poignant and funny, circling around the idea of home, and belonging (or not), and picking up the storage of traces of connection and memory. Beth Spencer places us in that in-between time of youth and old age, straddling the fine line between loneliness and solitude, regret and joy
