Encompassing works from 1974 to 1977, there is sure to be something for every poetry reader, novice to master, inside this truly accessible collection.

— Miriam L


"Rich's poems do not demand the willing suspension of disbelief. They demand belief, and it is a measure of her success as a poet that most of the time they get it. . . . The affirmation and the occasional moments of pure joy in these poems are quiet but fully earned."--Margaret Atwood, New York Times Book Review
