Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Fiction and poetry that draw from the beats of Latin soul and free jazz, rich evocations of the author's ancestral roots. Hagedorn muses about love and sex, mysticism and drugs, and probes with wry humor and sharp social satire the heart — and heartbreaks — of the immigrant experience. Here, in one volume, are early writings together with more recent work.

Review:

"[Hagedorn] sees her native land from both near and far, with ambivalent love, the only kind of love worth writing about." John Updike

Review:

"Jessica Hagedorn is one of the best of a new generation of writers who are making American language new and who in the process are creating a new American Literature." Russell Banks
