    Hauntingly Insightful

    Two years ago, I had the opportunity to interview Ira Joe Fisher for our local newspaper and to listen to him read a segment of this incredible work. I was so taken with it that I immediately asked for a copy to read to my family. The book has a fascinating premise it has such memorable descriptions that I can still visualize the scenes and it is hauntingly insightful. You don't have to be a poetry lover to enjoy this book. I am thrilled that it is now available for all who appreciate fine writing.
