From Library Journal:

"Being alive is a common road," Nye says in "Looking for the Cat Grace," "It's what we notice makes us different." In this, her third collection of poems, Nye examines both that common road and the particulars that her poetic sensibility forces her to notice. Her subjects range from her childhood and her Middle Eastern heritage, to her present life as a writer and teacher, to the world around hercharacters making brooms, cutting trees, buying peaches, loving, or suffering from the burdens of war and poverty. The poems are accessible, yet linger in the mind. They are celebrations of things that survive what they must weather, and teach us, like the "yellow glove" of the title, " . . . the difference between floating and going down."Grace Bauer, formerly with New Orleans P.L.
