Named a Best Poetry Book of 2017 by the New York Times Book Review, Sun in Days is "O'Rourke's most ravishing and brilliant collection yet" (Cathy Park Hong).

From acclaimed poet and critic Meghan O'Rourke comes a powerful collection about the frailty of the body, the longing for a child, and the philosophical questions raised when the body goes dramatically awry. These formally ambitious poems and lyric essays give voice to the experience of illness, the permanence of loss, and invigorating moments of grace. A Paterson Poetry Prize finalist, Sun in Days is unsentimental yet deeply felt, characterized by O'Rourke's signature lyric precision and force of observation.
