Poetry. "[Sara Dailey's EARLIER LIVES] feels at once grounded in the real world—attached to the things and people and creatures of this earth—and exploratory. Dailey goes where other poets sometimes fear to tread: poems about science, spiders, fruit flies. All sorts of seemingly unpromising subjects become strangely appealing to the reader. She is able to be heartbreakingly personal, but also wonderfully funny. I think that, finally, it is the range of her work—both emotionally and in terms of subject matter—that most impresses and delights me about Earlier Lives. Welcome to the amazing and unpredictably beautiful world of Sara Dailey!"—Jim Moore
