Poetry. Winner of the 201 James Laughlin Award. In a world where we find "everything helping itself / to everything else," Anna Moschovakis incorporates Craigslist ads, technobabble, twentieth-century ethics texts, scientific research, autobiographical detail, and historical anecdote to present an engaging lyric analysis of the way we live now. "It's your life," she tells the reader, "and we have come to celebrate it."

"[Moschovakis's] poems illuminate, amuse, and provoke. Plato would have loved them."—Ann Lauterbach
