"Plainspoken and moving, Osterman's chapbook looks at girlhood, relationships, first jobs, and the understated profundities of everyday life. This chapbook offers a delightful range of poems, including a reminder to pack all we can into our brief lives, as bees and spring crocuses do. These poems are sure to appeal to fans of Philip Levine, Dorianne Laux, or Ted Kooser. Osterman's All Animals Want the Same Things reads like a good conversation with a friend—you never want it to end."
