A friend bought me this book for my birthday, and after I read it, I bought Lewis' first three books as well. My friend said Lewis had been an early influence of hers; she considered her something of a voice crying out in the wilderness. After reading the body of Lewis's work, I know what my friend was talking about: this book, in particular, changed the way I think about the boundaries between narrative poetry, the conventional lyric, language poetry, and even the epic. It seems to me the poems in this book both diagnose and cure the ills of the twenty-first century: they combine honesty, irony, intensity, and--always--intelligence to bring the patient back to life. Her one-of-a-kind voice really is unparalleled in contemporary American poetry, and this book reconfirms her reputation as a master of truth-telling. All those clamoring for a resurgence of socially conscious poetry should be ashamed if they haven't bought this book.
