With a focus on musical language, this collection of swift, intricate prose poems, fuses great rushes of energy, with intense, secretive, sensual feelings. Everything is movement and passion in Free Rein, like making love in the open air.

“Clearly one of the most dynamic, lucid and endearing of all the young women writers I know.” Howard McCord, poet

“The passion for high experience gives direction to the sensuous language.”
American Book Review

“Dazzling surfaces.” Columbus Dispatch
