"When Elizabeth Alsobrooks holds a mirror up to life you can be sure she catches it all. Poet, novelist, scholar, publisher, professor, literary liaison – how could it be otherwise?

Savor it all in this intelligent and lyrical tour de force."--Thomas Sullivan, Pulitzer nominated author of Dust of Eden, Water Wolf, Born Burning...
