Poetry. Kim Calder brings the heartfelt sense of loss to bear on her raw, funny, and heartbreaking debut collection of poems. "As a first book which portends many more to come, it ranks with Sharon Olds' Satan Says, Dorianne Laux's Awake, and Richard Jones' Country of Air"--Jack Grapes. "Kim Calder doesn't kid herself. Her poems are full of sharp, swift observations that turn around, at the last minute, to trip the poet up--and that's after she's already caught us, her readers, in the act of hoping she'll go easy on us. No such luck. These are sometimes funny, sometimes heartbreaking, and always well-wrought. I'm eager for them to find their readers. But look out--they already know what you're thinking"--Chris Nealon.
