Here is the work of a masterful and much-honed poet at the peak of her powers. Sharp and strong as steel blades, these poems fuse eerie beauty with gleaming wit, and strangeness with tenderness. In showing the intersection of the mundane and the domestic with the uncouth and uncanny, the author lives up to such praise as “an artist … whose sensitivity to language is characteristic of the truly great in poetry” (R.W. Stedingh) and “Young moves in and out of time and worlds, never flagging or faltering and takes the reader with her” (Susan Musgrave). These are “poems to understand life by” (Rick Gibbs).
