      One of the great feminist poetry books ofwellever.

      Rambling, disjointed, but gorgeous journey through counter-culture America. Doubiago is genuine and devoted to her art. Most times it comes off, often surprisingly--which is all the more the gift of being open to vital awareness and expression.

      One of the best examples of where regionalism meets feminism. Outstanding.
