    • Abstract:
      Winner of the 2017 National Jewish Book Award, poetry category What is it like living today in the chaos of a city that is at once brutal and beautiful, heir to immigrant ancestors'who supposed their children's children would be rich and free?'What is it to live in the chaos of a world driven by'intolerable, unquenchable human desire?'How do we cope with all the wars? In the midst of the dark matter and dark energy of the universe, do we know what train we're on? In this cornucopia of a book, Ostriker finds herself immersed in phenomena ranging from a first snowfall in New York City to the Tibetan diaspora, asking questions that have no reply, writing poems in which'the arrow may be blown off course by storm and returned by miracle.'
