Another original, delightful book of poems from the winner of the poetry section in the 2004 Montana Book Awards. This new work, also a sequence, is much less tied to the poet's own experience. Wonderfully inventive and both disturbing and amusing, it focuses on a family of giants and in particular the daughter and her efforts to conceal from her lover (normal size) just how tall she really is. This tale also includes gentle satire on contemporary manners, witty language play and a warm and affectionate tone.
