Poetry. Winner of the 2010 Bull City Press First Book Prize, LITHOPEIDA marks the emergence of a haunting and lyrical new voice. "The lithopedion the stone baby, calcified, entombed within a woman's body or on display in a museum case lies at the heart of this rich and moving collection of poems concerned with generations of women, with what is kept or withheld, birthed or lost. Anne Keefe's poems are graceful, elegiac, and ghosted by the specter of the irretrievable: the children who could have been, who haunt the children who are." Mark Doty"
