Winner of the 2004 FIELD Poetry Prize, this most recent collection of poet Beckian Fritz Goldberg is a wry, elegant series of meditations on mortality and the body. Her poems are “breathtakingly beautiful and resolute in their conviction that words matter, especially in the fact of randomness and moral collapse.” (Bruce Weigl)
