  • Description or summary of the book: From National Book Award and National Book Critics Circle Award finalist Ada Lim n comes The Carrying-her most powerful collection yet. Vulnerable, tender, acute, these are serious poems, brave poems, exploring with honesty the ambiguous moment between the rapture of youth and the grace of acceptance. A daughter tends to aging parents. A woman struggles with infertility-'What if, instead of carrying / a child, I am supposed to carry grief?'-and a body seized by pain and vertigo as well as ecstasy. A nation convulses: 'Every song of this country / has an unsung third stanza, something brutal.' And still Lim n shows us, as ever, the persistence of hunger, love, and joy, the dizzying fullness of our too-short lives. 'Fine then, / I'll take it,' she writes. 'I'll take it all.' In Bright Dead Things, Lim n showed us a heart 'giant with power, heavy with blood'-'the huge beating genius machine / that thinks, no, it knows, / it's going to come in first.' In her follow-up collection, that heart is on full display-even as The Carrying continues further and deeper into the bloodstream, following the hard-won truth of what it means to live in an imperfect world.
