Overview

Eigenheim [Ei·gen·heim] noun. One's own home.

What is home? Is it found, is it built, or does it simply exist wherever we invoke its name? These are the central concerns of Joanne Epp's debut collection of poems. In Eigenheim, Epp wrestles with notions of home and the inherent tension between the need to go and find it and the desire to "settle down. " In the process, the world blossoms before her, offering glimpses of the transcendent.
