My Father’s Love, Portrait of the Poet as a Young Girl, Volume 1
"No other book has ever portrayed so vividly and convincingly the betrayal that adults practice every day on the children of this world."
–Gerald Nicosia, Memory Babe
"Deeply textured, carefully drawn, manages one of the hardest tasks of a writer: to coax understanding from confusion, to journey from weakness to strength."
–Sue William Silverman
Love on the Streets, Selected and New Poems
“ ... In her wide and deep and unflinching vision, the love poem expands and expands, transcends all borders and laws, becomes historical and political and mythic, epic and cosmic, merges the erotic and the spiritual, the tender and the violent, breaks the heart open again and again.”
"One great poem, an epic in the proper sense, a personal journey but also the foundation myth of a culture: the seeker is the American earth herself incarnate in the voice of the poet, and the hero is collective—the voices of its living commingling with those of the dead, through 'the terror of history.'"
