In What Happens readers will find two separate books by poet Hilda Raz, originally published as The Bone Dish and What Is Good , brought together for the first time as the author intended. These musically wrought and emotionally candid poems explore the pleasure and pain of family relationships, the complicated joy of being a woman, and the unconventional beauty of the Great Plains. Readers will meet Raz's son, Aaron, and find themselves drawn to fundamental questions about identity and belonging.
