Since 1977 when Eye Level, won the Juniper Prize, followed by the Lamont Poetry Prize in 1986 for her second collection, Minute Hand, and on to the accomplished work of Music Minus One, Happy Family, and A Yes-or-No Answer, Shore has deftly chronicled family life—telling stories and exploring emotions, with wit and a fine-honed lyricism in the vein of Elizabeth Bishop. Her new book contains work from each of her earlier collections along with new poems.
