Nothing Fatal

By Sarah Perrier

Publication Year: 2010

What happens when love is replaced by romance? In Nothing Fatal, Sarah Perrier presents us with a variety of answers to this question. Wise, sly, sexy, and sad, Perrier's poems not only court the reader, but flirt with each other, resulting in a collection that rejoices in, and even reconfigures, the notion of modern love.
