Thin but good. She was profiled on NPR. I'd like to read some others. They are very approachable poems - these are encased in Ordinary Time - the calendar weeks that fall between Easter and Advent. She often writes in couplets, which made me realize how much easier they were to understand - might need to try that. Lots of funny relational poems - poignant, scathing, sad.
