In this series of new poems Gail Mazur takes stock-of the complexity of relationships between parents and children, the desires of the body as well as its frailties, the distinctions between memory and history, and the hope of art to capture these seemingly inscrutable realities. By turns mordant and passionate, narrative and meditative, Mazur's poems imply that life, with all of its losses, triumphs, and abrasive intimacies, is far richer and more elaborately metaphorical than poetry can aspire to be-and yet her poems do affectingly recreate this reality. These illuminating poems are the work of an acclaimed poet at the top of her form.

From the Inside Flap:

The fierce "Questions" that open They Can't Take That Away from Me radiate throughout this book-urgent questions, fueled by desire, loss, and the hope for an art to embody "the soul circling its lessons." Gail Mazur's poems move in a direction she describes with both tenderness and irony as "leaning into pain as into a mother's arms." At once colloquial and lyrical voice, they stake a claim on our capacity to look at art and life unflinchingly, to lean into the passion and pain that are our inescapable inheritance, and live. That is what they can't take away from this indispensable poet.
