Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Demonstrating once again her "luxuriantly sensual imagination" (Washington Post), Molly Peacock celebrates marriage and a two-track life with the man who became her husband. As teenage sweethearts separated by other obligations, they found each other again at midlife. The piquant, sonnet-based poems take as their starting point her husband's survival from a life-threatening disease, addressing the contradictory ideas of planning for the future along with the urgency to make the present brilliantly alive. Three sections of the book portray moments in the marriage'"domestic glimpses'"but all the poems revolve around the deeper issue of how we love and how love affects the way we live.

Synopsis:

"Peacock is in peak form in these seductive poems that swing and twirl . . . valiant, trenchant, funny, and on point."--
