Publisher's synopsis

Honest, ironic, at times self-mocking, as uncompromising as it is distincitive, the voice which runs through this collection is the trademark of poet Fay Zwicky. It is richly present in poems from her books: Isaac Babel’s Fiddle and the groundbreaking volume, Kaddish. In the award-winning book, Ask Me, it defies convention. This final section contains exciting new poems of further exploration and discovery, carrying through the poet’s remarkable balance of grace and wite.
