Intense and searching, the poems of The Curious Thing explore passion, self-scrutiny, and female rage with glittering precision and peerless fluency. Lim writes fearless lyrics anchored by generosity, stinging wit, and a tough-minded approach to her own experiences. With fiery emotional clarity and a "whistle-in-the-dark bravado," these poems reveal "a mind studying itself and its ambivalence, exact at every turn, and by the end, breathtaking" (Louise Gl�ck).
