Coach House Books, 1986 - Poetry - 67 pages
0 Reviews

Witty, wonderful and disturbing all at the same time, Candy from Strangers, Diana Hartog's second book, sparkles with the same unforgettable images and turns of phrase as her award-winning Matinee Light. It is a book to return to again and again, in which the passions, fears and delights of the past and present merge in a haunting, dream-like clarity.
