straight to the heart;
it's bus route number eight.

Often a “new and selected” volume largely comprises the “selected” and merely hints at the material the writer is currently composing. In Dark. Sweet., however, we’re treated to an entire new body of work, 120 pages of her continuing journey of making peace with the unjust, of her love affair with life.
