A terrific debut book of poems. Whether Nancy Scott is writing about city streets, war veterans, memorable characters, her childhood, or her many years spent finding Section 8 housing for low-income families, her poems are filled with an uncommon engagement and magic. The magic comes from the language: condensed lines, clear and powerful imagery, unique ways of looking at people and social situations, mental leaps from one line to the next, and surprise phrasings and poem-endings. The book is both an accessible joy and an unpredictable jolt to read.
