1 Review
Poetry. "This is no ordinary love story. Fries has recorded all the forward, backward and sideways movements we make as we struggle with despair and hope, denial and fear, the unanswerable questions of an epidemic. These poems become tools which can help us survive" -Ruth L. Schwartz, San Francisco Bay Times.
