Poetry. Winner of the Washington Prize for 2013. A pregnancy memoir that unfolds through a series of poems about art, the book engages images of maternity—from the Madonna to the monster—to explore kinship, community, and mortality. The radical changes of a woman's body and role transform not just the individual but art, culture, and language themselves.
