Description: A much-anticipated second collection by the author of The Good Thief.

What do the living do? They make breakfast, shovel snow, make love, bury the dead, suffer and survive and remember and speak.

Informed by the death of a beloved brother, here are the stories of childhood, its thicket of sex and sorrow and joy, boys and girls growing into men and women, stories of a brother who in his dying could teach us how to be most alive. These poems touch the place where the inner life and the outer world meet: the moments when we realize that we are still living.

The Good Thief was selected by Margaret Atwood for the National Poetry Series.
-- "Marie Howe's poetry is luminous, intense, and eloquent, rooted in an abundant inner life". -- Stanley Kunitz
-- "These poems are difficult to forget; poems of obsession that transcend their own dark roots". -- Margaret Atwood
