Bottom of book is bumped with bending at the spine. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 117 pages; "The poems in this collection take the reader on a tour across post - WWII Europe and to 21st Century America. There is beauty and wonder here, moments which melt in the mouth and tingle the senses. This poet is an experienced guide with a good compass - trust her for she will lead you truly." - Rebecca Aronson The poems in this book reflect the life of one woman who lived under full-blown fascism in Italy and suffered the convolutions of a Europe caught in a world war. The author spent a year in Germany recently, reflecting on her past, and inviting her to reconsider the meaning of nationality and displacement. She talks about it as a year of loneliness and study. The author says in the foreword: "I had to fight with my notion of nationality and cleanse myself from the thousand-year-old hatreds handed down by unwise traditions and by history. I felt my horizons expand. I was discovering the world as neither white nor black." 48977
