A new collection from a poet long recognized for her "unfailing mastery of her medium" (New York Times).
Linda Pastan writes, "the art that mattered / was the life led fully / stanza by swollen stanza." That life is portrayed here, from the poet's earliest childhood memories to the surprises that come with age.
