Summary Highly readable poems--personal yet universal--about love and work in the life of a young woman, by a popular "New Yorker" writer and editor. These poems concern the poet's father's untimely death, her office life, her triumphs and disappointments in love, and her imaginative escape from the workaday world. Taken together, they form a compelling psychological story.
