In short fragments and understated language, three women brought together by the death of a family member offer insights into the moral and social climate of the last half of the 20th century in this book of prose poetry. Each woman recounts her own version of a shared history, revealing issues concerning family secrets, fears, needs, hopes, tensions about race and sexuality, dreams, and loves. The complexity and contexts of the behaviors, events, and perspectives are left for the reader to assess and interpret, and the experiences are connected by a powerful and engaging sense of immediacy and reality.
