This collection from rising author Lucy A. Snyder offers three dozen poems to delight listeners who enjoy sly wordplay and subtle allusion, high intelligence and fierce heart.
"She's been through the trenches; she knows the way the world comes down. You can feel it in the work. You're not just looking at words in a book, you're regarding a life that's been opened up and splashed down on the page. This lady is not only courageous, she's fearless. We need more like her to give us that grand plucking of the guts." (Tom Piccirilli, author of The Midnight Road and Waiting My Turn to Go Under the Knife, from his introduction)
"There is nothing illusory or mechanical about these poems. They take us on a marvelously eclectic journey, with a cast that includes a black hole voicing its thoughts and a dead man coming 'Home For the Holidays.' Read and be dazzled." (Christopher Conlon, author of Mary Falls: Requiem for Mrs. Surratt and Midnight on Mourn Street)
