About this Book

Rachel Rose follows her award-winning first book with a dazzling, urgent collection of new poems that look unflinchingly at our errors and our longings, in images that range from the disturbing to the spectacular. Anchoring the collection is a rich, unsentimental suite of lyrics on the journey of pregnancy and new motherhood. These poems are humanist, lushly imagined, and compellingly voiced.

Extras

Notes on Arrival and Departure investigates transformative moments. As a collection, it meditates on the unexpected shifts and unanticipated paths that our lives take as we navigate through birth and death, grief and sudden grace. These are poems that illuminate those points which divide our lives into “before” and “after,” those pivotal metamorphoses which leave us irrevocably changed.
–Rachel Rose
