Vivid sketches full of unexpected detail communicate bizarre, humorous, and magical cultural clashes in this first collection from a rising poet who draws from her personal experiences as the child of an immigrant. A woman stranded at home with small children listens to the radio for company in wry, colorful poems about domestic life. Summers in seaside cottages, the dramas of suburban life, and the memories of childhood are among the scenarios explored with a freshness and lack of pretension from this gifted poet.
