I fell in love with this book today.

The poems range from the personal to the political. Some are confessional in the purest sense ("Limits"). All are politically charged. She speaks of the politics of violence, the politics of gender and the intertwining of both.

The language is forceful at times, quietly academic at others.

Just a beautiful collection - full of anger and knowledge.
