From Publishers Weekly:

In her fourth collection of poems, Dove harvests ripe fruits of the self. Her best lyrics are spare, intense and deeply personal, such as "Pastoral," about breastfeeding her baby, or "The Wake," which begins: "Your absence distributed itself / like an invitation. / Friends and relatives / keep coming, trying / to fill up the house." There are family snapshots etched in memory, sketches of a Midwestern girlhood, of evenings in Jerusalem, of her small daughter struggling to comprehend as her mother details the facts of life. Dove, a 1987 Pulitzer Prize winner and associate editor of Callaloo , a journal of Afro-American arts, offers an appreciation of Billie Holiday's voice that is also a meditation on the mythification of women. Her poems blend chiseled imagery, everyday observation, private dramas, political comment.
