Poetry. Winner of the 2013 Cider Press Review Book Award, selected by Charles Harper Webb. "Pain, love, regret, joy, longing, loss, humor, and an earthy sexuality all find memorable expression in these poems. Ash has a gift for reversing reader expectations in illuminating ways, as well as for coining metaphors that startle with their aptness and their ability to refresh the world. I congratulate Amy Ash on having written this book, and you, reader, for the journey you are about to make."—Charles Harper Webb
