Description 0918949491 9.2 x 7.0 x 0.7 inches From Library Journal Editor of many anthologies, including When I Am an Old Woman I Shall Wear Purple, (Papier-Mache Pr., 1987), Martz is also founder of Papier-Mache Press. Her newest collection continues to feature prose, poetry, and photography by and about women, but the theme here is life as it is experienced through the female body. It would have been easy to compile a much thicker volume, but in the space provided she manages to select an impressive array of perspectives. The pieces are organized as if to follow the chronological life cycle, yet the overall resonance of the many voices being born and giving birth is anything but linear. Tending toward the emotive and always from the subjective, these pieces articulate what it is like to be Everywoman from every age. An inspirational glimpse geared toward general readership. Susan M. Olcott, Columbus Metropolitan Lib., Ohio Copyright 1994 Reed Business Information, Inc. From AudioFile Poems collected by Papier-Mach?
