Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Sarcastic and ironic on the surface, this collection of autobiographical prose poems seems cynical and introspective at first, but its sharp-tongued sense of humor helps turn the poems outward, embracing society andnbsp;creating a wry self-portrait of a young woman's urban world.
