Overview


"Wendy Lee Hermance’s prose and poetry are made of touching and surprising childhood memories – of shriveled apples, old pillows, fallen tree limbs, imaginary radio stations and things so difficult to put into words that we can only glimpse them between the lines of this highly compelling work."
Richard Zimler, international best-selling author of The Last Kabbalist of Lisbon.
