Publisher Comments:

I am delighted by her lyrical flare, her wit, and her remarkable ability to be both one and many poets, or one poet with twenty one voices."—Nin Andrews

This faux anthology of twenty-one invented poets belongs in the company of world literature's distinguished fabulists—Fernando Pessoa and Italo Calvino—in blurring the boundary between the textual and actual worlds.
