“In these poems, written during the last year and a half of her life, Diane Lutovich performs the most difficult of human tasks: balancing hope and acceptance. Without pity or despair, she looks closely at the world she loves.” —Carolyn Miller, author of After Cocteau

What I Stole

“With fabulous images originating from an especially sharp eye, Diane Sher Lutovich bares her longings and losses. She is frank, sensual, and wry. She goes everywhere: wilderness, museum, zoo, bar mitzvah, love bed, grave. A thief myself, I understand why she stole: her hunger and defiance.” —Phyllis Koestenbaum
