Description
Poetry. African American Studies. "Ruth Forman's wisdom, humor and grace brighten every page of PRAYERS LIKE SHOES. Here are the cadences of a woman's true speech rising into a poetry of deep love and warning, loss and survival, building toward a scriptural lyric that leads the reader through the darkness of our times and into an opening of necessary recognition and gratitude. I heard her beautiful voice on every page" Carolyn Forche. "In PRAYERS LIKE SHOES the brilliant Ruth Forman has topped herself. This is what Forman does best: brings us to the heart of all that matters and introduces us to ourselves" Junot Diaz.
