Unlikely Grace: A Poetry Sampler 


This sampler of poems takes its title from Walker Bass’s poem that finds splendor and grace in the most improbable of places. We liked how these poems about dementia, snakes, unplanned pregnancies, anger, rubbish, and loss seemed to locate a blessing in disguise.
