An Otherwise Healthy Woman
A clear-eyed look at what it is to be on both sides of America’s health care system, this book of poems offers rare insight into the humanity of the health care professional and the humanity of the patient. Spare and truthful, sorrowful and wise, these poems are necessary in both their deep empathy and their fierce gaze into mortality.
– Ada Limón, Author of The Carrying, Winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award, US Poet Laureate
The Geography of Kitchens
Amy Haddad is an exciting voice in contemporary poetry. In a literary landscape preoccupied with formal innovation and artistic novelty, Haddad reminds us that poets are—first and foremost—storytellers. Her enviable command of narrative will render you suddenly and startlingly aware of the transformational work that only the most skillful poetry can do.
