The Palace of Illusions

by Kim Addonizio

[T]he champ of this lovely story collection is ‘Cancer Poems,’ in which a late-middle-aged, middle-middle-class woman in Stage 4 takes a poetry class at a community center. The comic misery of the workshop lets Addonizio get away with a story about the importance poetry assumes in the shadow of death; the perfect ending alternates banal conversation with fragments of Keats. — New York Times Book Review
