Poetry. THE ODDS OF BEING is a new collection of poetry by Daneen Wardrop, a Professor of English at Western Michigan University. "THE ODDS OF BEING is an original; nobody writes like this, and Daneen Wardrop's poems seem to come from a quiet and loving necessity. Among other things, this book is a moving meditation of delight in a new daughter. And as a happy side-effect, reading these poems changes the way your mind hears words, sees landscapes, reflects on history; it is a wonderful flowering."—Jean Valentine
