This is book number 171 in the American Poets Continuum series.
"A precise and elegant look at motherhood, love, and what it means to live." --Seattle MetA luminous new collection from Keetje Kuipers, All Its Charms is a fearless and transformative reckoning of identity. By turns tender and raw, these poems chronicle Kuipers' decision to become a single mother by choice, her marriage to the woman she first fell in love with more than a decade before giving birth to her daughter, and her family's struggle to bring another child into their lives. All Its Charms is about much more than the reinvention of the American family--it's about transformation, desire, and who we can become when we move past who we thought we would be.
