Mango in Winter

August 30, 2013 News Release
These luminous, beautifully crafted poems leap from one stunning detail to another, facing hard truths and recounting haunting narratives of an ailing mother, a learning-disabled daughter, and a strong marriage…She celebrates a perfect mango found in a backstreet shop, yet in the same poem reminds us that our lives have been “flayed open,” a claim this book fearlessly demonstrates.
