Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The "brilliant and challenging" (Library Journal) exploration of living with HIV by the winner of the 1999 James Laughlin Award.

First published in 1993, this virtuosic collection defined writing about AIDS for a generation of poets. Chaotic and incantatory, it is a submersion into the railing consciousness of a young woman on the precipice of mortality, its "dazzling and valiant poems…the psalms of our present moment" (Sharon Olds).

About the Author

Tory Dent (d. 2005) is the author of three volumes of poetry. Her writing appeared in numerous periodicals, including Agni, Kenyon Review, Paris Review, Ploughshares, and Fence; and many anthologies, among them In the Company of My Solitude (Persea, 1995), and Things Shaped in Passing (Persea, 1997).
