What People are Saying About This

Diann Blakely
"Bowman . . . seems to manipulate the language with a branding iron in one hand and a bullwhip in the other. Bowman's native soil is Texas, and though she casts a cold eye on its codes of Bubba Machismo and Cheerleader Femininity, she knows that denying one's roots is equivalent to using a butcher's cleaver to perform an act of self-amputation."
Naomi Shihab Nye
"The sensual swoop and swoon of tasty language, this rich spell of texture and energy—1-800-HOT-RIBS deserves a flamboyant napkin of YESES and a big grateful bite! I haven't read anything more original in a long sweet time."
