The King is a groundbreaking collection following a Self--a mother, lover, wife, thinker--in her fractured approach to the absolutes of pregnancy, postpartum depression, childrearing, belief, love, and epistemology. Here is a potent exploration of one woman's coming together with the Other--her hard-won attachment to "the King."
