Its unwillingness to hold our hand every so often, while cracking an easy joke? Either way, Sarah Manguso, like her spiritual siblings David Berman and Tony Hoagland, is a friendly kind of savior and guide.

Poetry-fearers, don't back away from this beautiful book, these might be the pages that bring you back into the form." --Dave Eggers
