Advance Praise:

"What wisdom, what rue, what panache! With her background in theater, Estha Weiner knows that it’s the subtle gesture than conveys the deepest feeling, and that’s what she has achieved in these finely-wrought poems of worldliness and wit, and enormous, broken, resilient heart."      —Betsy Sholl, Poet Laureate of Maine

"No sushi chef's knife is better honed than the blade of Weiner's wit. It slices contemporary life thin as smoked salmon and holds it up to the light for us to see through it and our very selves. These precisely structured and crafted poems are a delicacy for those who enjoy irony and the joys of a vital intellect."      —Karen Swenson

"Estha Weiner is a poet unafraid to venture into the darkness of the heart’s persistent longings. With humor, grace, and a great breadth of knowledge and experience, she illuminates the difficult path love weaves for us all."      —Clint McCown
