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.

"There's much to admire in Transplanted, not least of which is a consistent sense of measure and intelligence at work." — Garry Geddes
