These poems — intrepid, obsessive, and erotic — tell the story of a woman's attempt to overcome despair. Claudia Rankine, whose first collection was the prize-winning Nothing in Nature is Private, creates a transfixing testimonial to a woman facing her own disease. Drawing on voices from Jane Eyre to Lady MacBeth, Rankine welds the cerebral and the spiritual, the sensual and the grotesque, courting paradox into the center of her voice.

    In another language hunger might bring her to her feet
    but there is no hunger in English. Desire, longing—
    every emotion in a relationship with too much of itself.
