About the Book A woman in midlife navigates between memories from her past and present day anxiety as she awaits her husband´s kidney transplant. She must enter new territory, focus on the impending surgery and how "skin can be cut/shaped into layers/with corners touching corners." She wonders how lives will return to the ordinariness of "night noises/furnace, fridge, wooden floor." Carter´s Transplanted links a poetic voice as distinctive as "shimmering cymbals" to the reality of a bedside monitor.
