Unlike the more sophisticated and joyous poetry she is most commonly known for, this collection gives voice to the pain of an abused child as she struggles with the rage and helplessness inherent to her victimization.
Ms. Ashe has been lauded internationally as a beacon of light for rape and abuse victims.
A Small Book of Disturbing Poetry shows the darker side of the artist, the pain, suffering and even fantasies expressed that paved the way for her ultimate healing.
The work, though disturbing and simplistic, offers insight into a truly beautiful mind, and represents the progression from angry literary neophyte to the voice of recovery and love.
This book will disturb, read it with the knowledge that the expressions of rage and pain within its pages made inspiration and healing possible.
