Review quote

"[The poems] delineate a psychic landscape which encompasses hope through the process of coming to terms with cataclysmic change. Gritty, honest and remarkable for their lack of self-pity, some of these poems are even humorous. All represent the poets' ability to name their struggle and, in naming, have some power over it... Written in spare, clear language, the poems sound accessible and beautifully crafted." -- Alison Townsend, Women's Review of Books. "Articulates both the almost inexpressible hurt and fear that any cancer involves, as well as that 'neutering,' as Bettie Sellers calls it, specific to breast cancer." -- ALA Booklistshow more
