Product description


John Nichols Author of "The Milagro Beanfield War" This is a lovely memoir, written with humor, insight, chutzpah, and great tenderness. Mary Sojourner is an original, as feisty as they come, and dedicated to the struggle to forge a better world. She is also a writer of tremendous passion and compassion, expressed in a simple, lyrical, wonderful prose style that carries you along effortlessly like a beautiful ocean wave. Craig Childs Author of "The Secret Knowledge of Water" This is damn beautiful writing. Cruel with honesty. Erotic as wind, filthy like mud-stomped shoes. Mary hides nothing. Her words will track all over your soul. Savor this stuff, this terrified, righteous nakedness of hers. It is rare. Page Lambert Author of "In Search of Kinship" Mary Sojourner has the wisdom to envision a new life and the courage to embrace it. "Solace" is both challenge and meditation. Rudolfo Anaya Author of "Bless Me, Ultima" Fierce and poetic. "Solace" is a tempest of singing the blues, recording a life fully lived, and crying out with passion to save our Western lands. These honest and sometimes heartbreaking revelations are not only for women, they're for all who have tasted the raw emotions of life. W. D. Ehrhart Author of "Beautiful Wreckage: New and Selected Poems" Sojourner examines her life with an unblinking honesty that is touching, fascinating, and often startling. It is a story of loss and recovery, courage and discovery, a woman constantly finding herself and her place in the world. Ann Cummins Author of "Red Ant House: Stories" Readers and writers 'aching for their own company, afraid to find it, ' can take refuge in Mary Sojourner's lovely memoir. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
