Review: Walking Through Clear Water in a Pool Painted Black (Native Agents)

User Review  - Nicole - Goodreads

I love this read, and can see myself rereading Cookie's chapter on childbearing annually. She's vibrant, fierce, and a force to be reckoned with as a writer and actress. Now, please tell me how I can access her other writings, especially those from the East Village Eye! Read full review
