From London's hospital wards to rural Italy and the Great Plains, Sally Read's first collection eulogizes the emotional and physical borders we cross, whether in sexual surrender, the squeezing of a trigger, or the point at which skin is pierced by a needle. What results appeals to the thresholds at which we succumb to desire, love, or grief. Yet, ultimately, there is tenderness and acceptance as she considers what breaks us, and what binds. Sally Read was born in Suffolk in 1971. She earned her Master of Arts at the University of South Dakota. She received an Eric Gregory Award in 2001. This is her first collection.
