Summary (From the publisher):

Here is an assured, full-bodied first book of poetry from an ward-winning, immensely gifted young writer. Her compelling explorations of inheritance and belonging, history and loss are nuanced and novelistic in scope, peopled with vivid voices and characters—the lost sailor on Franklin's doomed Arctic expedition; the drunken Irish poets marking the untimely death of a young writer; the sullen man who burns the hens in the yard along with his wife's wedding dress; the four friends reeling ecstatically through a field at night, searching for a lost pint glass and toasting the dawn.
