Sensuous and precise, these poems explore the boundaries and transgressions between parents, children, lovers: the ways we confine one another, the ways we break free.
“This one just has that punch in the stomach, ‘wow, who the f#!% wrote this’ factor going for it. I like how the poems are strong, yet understated, loud and quiet at the same time.”Dorianne Laux, The Book of Men (W.W. Norton)
“Unrelentingly harrowing.”Marie Howe, The Kingdom of Ordinary Time (W.W. Norton)
