This book is a record of both facing death and facing life.

Using formal poetic elements, Austin chronicles her struggles with terminal breast cancer. BOW is an entrancing book of poems--a series of letters from the other side, if you will, which are by turns bracing and consoling, filled with the knowledge that inevitably comes too late in our lives to be of any use to us. Penelope Austin knew how to live, and in these poems, which are marked by their formal variety, musical exhuberance, and wisdom born of her delight in the things of the world, she teaches us how to love what we will lose: everything.

She was from the start of her poetric journey a brave and generous guide to the difficult terrain of the heart in the throes of passion, and in this posthumous collection she prepares us for the rest of the way, when The heart arcs/ toward beauty, trailing/ stars in its wake. What stars these are, what light--Christopher Merrill.
