“We hardly know how we will meet our last days, but in these poems, Diane Lutovich provides as clear a model as one could hope for. ”
—Margaret Kaufman, author of Snake at the Wrist
“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.”

“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.”
~ Winner of an American Book Award for 2004 from the Before Columbus Foundation and a finalist for the 2004 Independent Publisher Book Award.
