Abstract:

"Prying into the dynamic, liminal space between lovers, Amateurs at Love takes precision aim at the silent climacteric moments of the heart: the interrogating, persuading, confiding, reflecting moments that help us feel and understand that distance. In forms ranging from pangramic love songs to prose poetry, Patricia Young guides us through the many looks and layers of human relationship, exploring fondness and heartbreak with masterful form. At times tender and vulnerable, at others inquisitive and sharp, Amateurs at Love faithfully observes the inner voice that makes sense of our past."--
