Synopses & Reviews
Poetry. The Early Renaissance game of Tarot inspired poetry centuries before it was used for fortune telling. The poems in FORTUNE'S LOVER do not explain the Tarot so much as spin off from it. These poems are infused with a wisdom based not so much in finding the right answers as in asking the right questions. Rachel Pollack is the author of thirty books of fiction and non-fiction, which have been published in fourteen languages, including: 78 Degrees of Wisdom, The Body of the Goddess, and Tarot of Perfection. Her books have won the World Fantasy Award, the Arthur C. Clarke Award, and the COVR Award. She is also a visual artist, the creator of The Shining Tribe Tarot. She teaches in the MFA program at Goddard College.
