NPR Summary

Pulitzer prize finalist Perillo has always written poems that were hilarious even as they recounted her struggle with debilitating multiple sclerosis. In this, her most intimate collection to date, she confronts her own mortality, and the fragility of life in general, though not without flashing a bit of a smile.
