Annotation:

"In every poem in If You Have to Go, Katie Ford risks seeing--she must, because from her first book onward, but never more so than here, her poems have been poems that have seen. Here, Ford has seen the end of a marriage, and in her great refusal to make the world weep as she weeps, she finds herself at times almost unbearably at odds with a world she sees unchanged by her suffering, and so she sees the world--'everyone thrashes / against a wall / in this life.' Ford becomes stronger with each book, and is among the best poets of our generation." -- Shane McCrae
