Description: The richly diverse poems of this anthology are at once fiercely personal and universal. Topics range from family and marriage to prayer and "repair of the world".

Piercy recalls her Jewish family: the painful relationship with her mother, and the influence of other family members. Poems on marriage burst with warmth and sensuality, as she explores the passion and fortitude of a relationship that, like the Jewish marriage canopy, has no walls, yet withstands the wind, rain, and "searing heat" of living. The same heart-stopping vividness is evident in poems that unflinchinigly tackle the injustices of the century, particularly the Holocaust.

The later part of the book takes on a contemplative tone. In the section on prayer Piercy reworks many well-known Jewish blessings, and in the final section, she traces the Jewish year, with reflections on the Sabbath and the New Year, and a cycle of Passover poems, rich with the tastes and textures of the Seder plate.

A superb collection both secularized and deeply conscious of Jewish roots.
