Product description

Review

International praise for Molly Peacock:
 • "She has a luxuriantly sensual imagination -- and an equally sensual feel for the language." Washington Post
 • "Peacock's prose is a delight.... Fascinating, uplifting and beautiful." Vancouver Sun
 • "There's a delicious tang to Peacock's vital poems -- a taste of earth, salty and laced with iron.... Gratifyingly lucid poems that mesh a rich physicality with arresting emotional precision." Booklist
Praise for The Paper Garden:
 • "A rumination on art and the blossoming beauty of self that can be the gift of age and love." Kirkus Reviews
