Author(s): Carol Ann Duffy
A collection of poems by women from different cultures and backgrounds, portraying the varied facets of the female experience from childhood to old age.
"This excellent volume features the work of women, known and unknown, from around the world . . . Buy this book for someone who thinks she doesn't like poetry."--"The Bloomsbury Review"
"These are witty, sophisticated, non-messagey poems. They are angry, funny, tender, dramatic, full of surprise and conflict and self-mockery. Candid about failure and betrayal, they play with language, role, and stereotype . . . [They] open up the range of love and family."--"Booklist "(starred review)
