Poetry. Winner of the 2009 John Ciardi Prize for Poetry. "The poems in this book exhibit the poet's great attention to and skill with form, sound, and language. The poems are constantly surprising, taking us to the far corners of the poet's metaphorical maps, and, in her words, 'gesturing us to go further.' This is imaginative writing at its very best visual, aural, metaphorical, ethical, and adventurous. The poet constructs genuinely new topographies for us that offer significant and original inroads into our understanding of what it means to be human" Sidney Wade, Judge, John Ciardi Prize for Poetry.
