The Odds of Being
by Daneen Wardrop
Award Winner: 2006

"The Odds of Being is an original; nobody writes like this, and Daneen Wardrop's poems seem to come from a quiet and loving necessity. Among other things, this book is a moving meditation of delight in a new daughter. And as a happy side-effect, reading these poems changes the way your mind hears words, sees landscapes, reflects on history; it is a wonderful flowering." -- Jean Valentine
