This is the most recent poetry collection of this internationally celebrated socialist and feminist author. Covering the first five years after her return from over twenty years abroad, in Mexico, Cuba and Nicaragua, these poems describe Randall battling threats of deportation from the Immigra- tion and Naturalization Service, waking from the nightmare of childhood incest, emerging as a lesbian, and continuing her feminist support of worldwide socialism in politically troubled times. Margaret Randall divides her time between her home in Albuquerque and lecture tours across the country.

About the author (1992)

Born in New York in 1936, Randall grew up in New Mexico before living for twenty-three years in Mexico, Cuba, and Nicaragua. In Mexico she co-founded and edited El corno emplumado/The Plumed Horn, a vanguard bilingual literary journal of the 1960s. In Cuba and Nicaragua she worked with other artists to contribute to social change. Randall returned to the U.S. in 1984, only to face attacks on her writing that led to an effort to deport her under the McCarran-Walter Immigration and Nationality Act. After a five-year battle, joined by many of the nation's outstanding artists, writers, unionists, religious leaders, and others, she won her case in 1989.
