Sasha Steensen’s poetry collection House of Deer takes the reader back in time to 1970s America, which was a time of idealism, promises, naturalism, and yes, even drug addiction. She frames the pros and cons of the ‘70s in terms of the family unit. In some pieces, families make the decision to “go back to the land” but ultimately wind up moving away from it. In other poems, families struggle with one relative’s drug addiction and attempt to keep their bonds from splitting apart.
