Her Soul beneath the Bone

Women's Poetry on Breast Cancer

"Breast cancer is confronted here with keen sensitivity and candor in poems that are serious but not sentimental or self-pitying. . . . Almost all the verses are written in direct and prose-like style---this creates a singular tone and lends the collection richness and resilience. And though terrible grief and loss emerge in there pages, so do humor and hope."
