Desdemona's Fire: Poems
While miscegenation has always been more a part of America's history than many want to admit, this first collection journeys boldly across a forbidden landscape in poems that are sometimes painful but always rewarding in the richness of their imagery and detail. Mythology and personal experience combine in an unforgettable sharing that will imprint itself indelibly on the consciousness of the discerning reader.
