In Sara Backer’s first full-length collection of poetry, Such Luck, you will find yourself on an unexpected journey, charged with visionary and psychological intensities. Her poems are well crafted and highly original. They are sometimes haunting, sometimes playful, and always introspective and intriguing. She explores what it is to be fully alive and aware in a diverse, contemporary, and sometimes surreal world. This is the kind of book you will return to for its ability to stimulate equally your intellect and imagination. A masterful and magical first book of poems.
