"This book is as good as it gets. ..."—Grace Cavalieri, Washington Independent Review of Books

These lyric poems come from a voice of authority, where the terrain is at once discovered and known, palpable yet mysterious

“Whether the subject is the Holocaust, a summer house, the death of parents, maternal anxiety, gardening, love, or memory, the poems totter between sorrow at the passage of time and finding a way to face the future….” —From the preface by Jacquelyn Malone
