Synopsis: Cockfights, a prophetic turnip, the "pharmack mysteries" of antidepressants . . . in this book the natural world looms as a potent and nearly conscious metaphor for desire, transcendence and loss. The power in these poems comes from a persistently idiosyncratic combination of subject, language and tone: the dark emotion energy of the subjects—illness, witch trials, lost children—the lush, urgent language, and the exacting, wry, relentlessly unsentimental tone.

About the Author: AMY BEEDER teaches poetry at the University of New Mexico and at Taos Summer Writer's Conference. Previously, she worked as a freelance reporter, a political asylum specialist, a high school teacher in West Africa, and a human rights observer in Haiti and Surinam. Her awards include the 2001 "Discovery"/The Nation Award, a Bread Loaf Scholarship, and a Witness Emerging Writers Award. Her poems have appeared in Poetry, The Nation, AGNI, and other publications. She is Poetry Editor for the Blue Mesa Review, and lives in Albuquerque with her husband and two daughters.
