These narrative and lyric poems celebrate desire, marriage, and domestic life; they visit sexual terror and consider sickness and death. Constructing all of life as a journey that takes us from innocence to knowledge, this work suggests the maps we need may be found on our bodies.

Praise For Eve's Striptease (Pitt Poetry)

“You have to admire a poet who can take an onion, the flu, houseguests, migraines, and a nurse's coat and turn them in to poetry. Of course, Kasdorf is using the concrete to get a deeper things: there's an amazement at life in these poems, and a hard-headed determination to make it work.”
