Poetry. Jewish Studies. Ungar's diabolical book is both devilishly funny and devastatingly open about love, sex, marriage, and divorce. Selected for the Hilary Tham Capital Collection by Judge Denise Duhamel, who says, "Formally inventive, punch-in-the-guts honest, these poems are for romantics, cynics, and every kind of reader in between."
