Format: Paperback
I truly love this book. It includes a fine sampling of Ms. Piercy's work. There are love poems, feminist poems, poems about animals and vegetables and living at the Cape. I bought the book about 15 years ago and I continue to read these poems. Each time I do I get something new. A must-have for anyone who loves poetry!

I had never read Marge Piercy until I found a poem of hers in an anthology and then rushed out to find whatever I could find written by her. That is substantial. I love this book. It contains a wide range of emotions and subjects, all written in a style that makes the poem easy to identify with, while containing multiple layers that make it new every time you read it. Highly recommended.

I love Marge Piercy's poems and this book is the best collection I know. Her clear thinking, uncompromising feminism, her brassy humor, and her hopeful insight have been a delight that I return to again and again

This book of free verse poetry is a hoot. Marge lets loose with somewhat coarse diatribes against the injustices of life. She is the master of the unexpected declaration and the get-inside-your-skin simile. To have read her is to have lived… in an industrial world teeming with amorous parasites… in other words, the real one. She is probably the first poet I’ve read who I’d actually like to meet. She pulls no punches, lays it out in all vulgarity… and wonders at the futility. Visceral is an understatement. A very intelligent and imaginative diary of one being’s journey through the big mess.
