Synopsis:

A New York Times Book Review "100 Notable Books of the Year" selection; Publishers Weekly "Top 10 Poetry Book of the Year"; winner of the Pacific Northwest Booksellers Association Award for Poetry; and a National Book Critics Circle Award finalist.

"Perillo has long lived with, and written about, her struggle with debilitating multiple sclerosis. Her bracing sixth book of poems takes an unflinching, though not unsmiling, look at mortality."—Publishers Weekly, starred review

"The poems in On the Spectrum of Possible Deaths are taut, lucid, lyric, filled with complex emotional reflection while avoiding the usual difficulties of highbrow poetry."—The New York Times Book Review

From "Victor the Shaman":

I feel the need for more humanitybecause the winter wren is not enough, even with its complicated music emanating

from the brambles. So I relent to my friendwho keeps bugging me to see her shaman, tutored by the Indians who live at the base

of Monte Albán. Tutored also by the heavy bagat Sonny's Gym: Box like heaven / Fight like hellhis T-shirt says; the graphic shows an angel's fist

buried to the wrist in Satan's brisket, while the princeof dark jabs the angel's kisser . . .
