About the Book

"An alert, skeptical, passionate book about human understanding and its limitations."—Robert Pinsky

"With a calm voice and distinct music, the poet speaks about love and loss and many micro-aspects of the human condition today. It is a splendid debut."—Ha Jin

A linguistic tour-de-force that traverses cultural, psychological, and international boundaries.

Eleanor Goodman navigates between worlds, from a parent's cancer in Ohio to Hong Kong's Tolo Harbor to migrant workers in China. These poems are snapshots of daily life as lived and considered, moments of elegy and rejoicing. Goodman won the 2015 Lucien Stryk Prize and was shortlisted for the Griffin Poetry Prize for her translations of Chinese poetry.
