Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"A wife and husband write politically in very different ways, charting "new territories of the imagination." —Meena Alexander, author of Fault Lines

"A work of the highest interest, Nichol's ironic juxtapositions and Paley's heartbreaking elisions smile at each other across eternity." —Marilyn French, author of The Women's Room

"Opens up our thinking about race and class and the 'little disturbances' of men and women. A generous helping of stories and poems of two wonderful political writers bundled into one economical package."
Ruth Perry, author of Novel Relations: The Transformation of Kinship in English Literature and Culture
