Poetry. Winner of the 2008 Bordighera Poetry Prize judged by Michael Palma. "The poems of HEART MURMUR are richly talky and utterly authentic, one moment wry and self-deprecating and the next astonishingly open-hearted. I honor this book for its celebration of our foolish hopes, our crazed and enlivening appetites"--Nancy Eimers.
