"Many the poems engage the perspectives of Judaism and Christianity, especially where the two traditions overlap and collide – or where each struggles to invent the other. The ‘want’ of the title, The Want Bone – spiritual, sexual, historical, personal – is embodied in the formal inventions that are a hallmark of Pinsky’s work, now brought into challenging and memorable new territory."
