If you want your breath to catch and your heart to stop, turn to Kate Baer.--Joanna Goddard, Cup of Jo
A stunning and honest debut poetry collection about the beauty and hardships of being a woman in the world today, and the many roles we play - mother, partner, and friend.
When life throws you a bag of sorrow, hold out your hands/Little by little, mountains are climbed. So ends Kate Baer's remarkable poem Things My Girlfriends Teach Me. In Nothing Tastes as Good as Skinny Feels she challenges her reader to consider their grandmother's cake, the taste of the sea, the cool swill of freedom. In her poem Deliverance about her son's birth she writes What is the word for when the light leaves the body?/What is the word for when it/at last, returns?
Through poems that are as unforgettably beautiful as they are accessible, Kate Bear proves herself to truly be an exemplary voice in modern poetry. Her words make women feel seen in their own bodies, in their own marriages, and in their own lives. Her poems are those you share with your mother, your daughter, your sister, and your friends.
