By turns funny and deeply moving, this collection offers a journey of three generations. European Jewish immigrants spar across a holiday table. Methodists reel at the election of a Catholic president. Their families inter-marry, and the result is a poet who is "whole cloth composed of scraps." These poems are formally graceful and compassionate. Together they detail and comprise a rich American heritage of love and its misfires, what the poet dubs "the failed d
étente called family."
—Benjamin Grossberg, author of Space Traveler
