This is poet Denise Duhamel's 4th collection and what a humorous, heartbreaking, angry, and touching collection it is. Centered mostly around the end of her marriage (and the spark of something new), Duhamel is the best friend you never had tell you all the things you wanted to know (but were too afraid to ask). She writes in free verse mostly, but this is a narrative confessional poetry that reads a lot like a first-person novel. Readers will identify with the poet whether woman or man (who hasn't been blindsided in a relationship?) and cheer for her when she finally finds someone to share her creative and personal life with. Recommended.
