Upgraded to Serious

National Book Award finalist Heather McHugh presents a fast-paced and brilliantly humorous book. Utilizing medical terminology to work through loss and detachment, McHugh's startling rhymes and rhythms -- along with her sarcastic self-reflection -- serve as antidotes to the sufferings of the world. Being "upgraded to serious" from critical condition is a nod to the healing powers of poetry.
