Another winning collection from one of our most read and enjoyed poets- a bountiful group of poems that reflect on language, nature, old age, young love, Judaism, and our current politics--all in her usual direct and mind-tingling fashion.

"An ode to a life lived big and full . . . Direct, earthy poems [that] steer us towards something larger than the self." -Sophia Starmack, The Provincetown Independent

"Piercy's collection is full of life, companionship, and the importance of advocating for others . . . Multifaceted, [it] touches on her identities as activist, teacher, cat lover, novelist, and poet."
-Publishers Weekly

"Her varied themes include politics (emphatically leftist), gender roles, Jewishness, womanhood, age, and mortality, all of which she approaches with a matter-of-factness that is one of the gifts of long and considered experience. Piercy shares her life with admirable honesty." -AudioFile
