Our Human Hearts is a nonfiction exploration of the meanings of the human heart as interpreted by two traditions: medical science, which has made possible dramatic cardiac surgery and sophisticated drug treatments, and the much older cultural traditions that view the heart as a repository for wisdom, courage, emotion, and the soul. Carter interlaces medical and linguistic information with the stories of four heart patients, each with different illnesses and different personal approaches to healing. Much has been written about the heart from a medical standpoint, but few experts have explored the human side of the heart by giving a voice to the patients. Our Human Hearts will be appreciated by the medical community, cardiology patients and their families, and anyone interested in the meaning and health of the human heart.

Primer for Non-Native Speakers is a collection of poems that explores the dizzying interplay of language and landscape in one poet's life in Russia during the chaotic years after the fall of the Soviet Union. From layered narratives to short lyrics, from persona poems to imitations of conversation primers, from sonnet sequences to experimental fragments, Primer for Non-Native Speakers is itself a kind of primer of poetry, demonstrating how fundamentally lyric poetry might also illuminate a particular historical moment and culture.
