Dorothy Wall (www.dorothywall.com) is author of Encounters with the Invisible: Unseen Illness, Controversy, and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, and coauthor of Finding Your Writer’s Voice: A Guide to Creative Fiction. She has taught poetry and fiction writing at San Francisco State University, U.C. Berkeley Extension and Napa Valley College, and for 25 years has run a writing consulting business in Berkeley. Her poetry, essays and articles have appeared in numerous journals and magazines. Dorothy Wall consistently uses language as a tool to expose her own vulnerabilities and the frailties of the world. Her pen leaves nothing unturned, unexamined-joy and grief receive the same scrutiny and, as a result of that process, the source is rediscovered and offered to the reader as a small gift. -Stewart Florsheim, author of A Split Second of Light In Identity Theory, Dorothy Wall ‘holds aside marble folds/exposing the white undersheen, /a monument to the art of/disrobing.’ This collection moves from objective, almost statue-like representations of emotional realities to a world of passion and uncertainty wherein a dead mother begins ‘talking almost every day.’ These clean, well-wrought poems bring alive the personal struggles of a master poet. -Charles Entrekin, author of Listening: New & Selected Work This is the poet who will ground you inside terrain where you can walk around in wonder, yet lift you to heights that give a view of the world that is transformative. This poet has mastered her craft with an attention so meticulous and so fine-tuned, so sensitive and sensory that it has resulted in this body of work, one that deserves to be read over and over. -Andrena Zawinski, author of Something About, PEN-Oakland Award recipient
