Fabulous New Book By Jeanette Winterson

I've read all of Ms. Winterson's books and was extremely happy to get an advance reader's copy of this, her new memoir, which comes out March 6.  I highly recommend everything she's written.  

Here's her web page with a listing and description of all of her books:




The Freedom of the Moon
By Robert Frost

I’ve tried the new moon tilted in the air
above a hazy tree-and-farmhouse cluster
as you might try a jewel in your hair.
I’ve tried it fine with little breadth of luster,
alone, or in one ornament combining
with one first water-star almost as shining.

I put it shining anywhere I please.
by walking slowly on some evening later
I’ve pulled it from a crate of crooked trees,
and brought it over glossy water, greater,
and dropped it in, and seen the image wallow,
the color run, all sorts of wonder follow.

I'm not familiar with that author. I'll have to check out her work.

A recommendation AND a Frost poem :D All it needs is a bit of Marion's verse ;-)

I saw this reviewed in Between The Lines, our local LGBT paper. I have read a couple of hers. "Oranges Are Not The Only Fruit" and Lighthouse Keeping".
