Cathy Song's poems are "bouquets to those moments in life that seemed minor but in retrospect count the most," Richard Hugo said of the poet's first book. "She accommodates experiential extremes with a sensibility strengthened by patience that is centuries old, ancestral, tribal, a gift passed down."

I love this collection. It's made of rather long poems that are so full of feeling and memory and sensation.

I don't have a lot to say about it, really. It's fantastic and beautiful, the way I always think poetry should be.

Unremarkable. It commits the cardinal sin of any book - boring the reader. It reads like a stale memoir with little plot and less craft. It's not bad, but it's also no good. But it makes a fantastic cautionary tale for aspiring poets: like fortune, art favors the bold.
