Read full description of the books:

I don't think in square feet. If you tell me a house is so many square feet big, I'll have no idea how big the house is. I've never bought a house or registered a china pattern. I've never lived in the suburbs. Nevertheless, when Lori A May speaks in the vocabulary of the suburban middle class, I understand. Suburban middle class has become the default definition of American.

In poems like "Place Settings" and "Separating the Whites," May uses this default metaphorically to create a portrait of a marriage from choosing the place settings to the renewal of "A Fresh Coat" of paint. Sweepstakes junk-mail, a burnt-out bulb in the refrigerator, the chipped bowl we can't quite bring ourselves to throw away, May transforms these trivialities which form the texture of day to day life.

May's world view is not without humor, as in this poem, my favorite:

Tucked in the Corner

We hold onto the broken
chipped bowl, careful
not to let the other seven
know its fragility,
for we cannot afford
an epidemic.
