Book description
Topics: Choosing not to have kids, mothering other people's kids, her brother's death in a bathtub perhaps killed, her brother's abuse of her, relationship with a man, how we handle memory and history

Style: My favorite--story plus layers, always know what's going on.  Nice use of poetic devices, nice control.  I really liked it
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0911287647, Paperback)

Austen's poems test the boundaries between the known and the unknowable, as a woman reckons with the sudden death of a brother and her complicated past. At times wryly funny and at others wrenchingly vulnerable, these poems reveal tensions reverberating among desire, family, spirituality and identity. Every Dress a Decision was a finalist for the 2012 Washington State Book Award in poetry.
