Poetry. Literary Nonfiction. Memoir. "What a powerful little volume Osing has put together. The personal essays--eccentricand lovingly conceived and penned.

These essays gleaned from journals cross over into poetry and the poems circle back into the notions and experiences Osing so tauntingly captures in exciting prose. No sojourn into cultural and intimate geography will ever be quite the same for me"--Al Young.
