3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By R. Peake on October 4, 2008
Format: Paperback
This is a collection of free-verse poems around themes of contemporary womanhood. With careful observation and unflinching honesty, Bitting brings us poetry through various perspectives: the sister reflecting on her brother's suicide, the mother squirting meds into her autistic son's cran-apple juice, the uniformed schoolgirl in a tryst with her married teacher, the wife offering her body like bread to her husband before his long journey. If you like Dorianne Laux, Mark Doty, or Sharon Olds, Bitting's debut should be on your shelf, or, better yet, in your lap.
