Piercy's 10th book of poetry takes its title from one of her moving poems, the climax of a powerful sequence of poems dedicated to her mother, where she writes about her mother's self-denial and unfulfilled life. Organized in four sections - "What Remains," "The Chuppah," Chiaroscuro" and "Underrated Pleasures" - the poems deal with diverse subjects offering vivid records of female heroism, of the joys of wedded love, and the pleasures of daily life. "The Chuppah" comprises poems actually used in her wedding ceremony with Ira Wood and reveals her Jewish identity and faith. Other poems are about doing housework, about accidents, children's fear of nuclear holocaust, tomcats, insects in the rafters, and pollution. The volume concludes with "Six Underrated Pleasures," which finds pleasure, mystery, and affirmation of self in women's daily tasks.
