In this collection of poetry the author finds, in the character of Scheherazade, a metaphor for what it means to write. The voices of these poems are deeply female, whether they be those of daughters, lovers or mothers; they remind us that the difficult truths of the imagination are rooted in the body. Here are poems that find love and redemption in darkness, intelligence and emotion in the erotic.
