I really liked The Wait of Atom, Carty's 2009 poetry chapbook. I love the cover of An Amateur Marriage, and I am intrigued by domestic poetry and fiction. But many of these poems just didn't evoke the level of emotion I was hoping for. That being said, my favorites were; "To the Boy in the Lobster Sweater," "Ars Poetica" and "First House, First Summer."
