Follow Ruth Altmann as she takes you "to the Midwest, New York, the Antarctic" in what Alice Notly deems a "funny, fleshy, brainy book of poetry." Maureen Owen praises the "honesty" and "lyrical compassion" that grace the pages of this rich "chronicle of being alive." A native New Yorker, Ruth Altman's past experiences as a reporter, editor, teacher and, currently, a doctorate student, contribute to the varied voices that, according to Bernadette Mayer, demonstrate one's ability to "change the world through poetry."
