Epstein's new collection is a "must read." I love the way she is very daring with lines, their length, their place on the page. "Air" is amazing, as is "Swing", "Crave" and a number of others. I am moved by many of the themes of this book—the way she finds new meaning in her girlhood, the way she moves from grief and loss into a new sense of herself, and her newfound joy in being more who she feels she truly is. An important book about life transitions, a theme we can all relate to and gain new insights about from this important poet.
