"With its many voices, images and aphorisms--from those of Maxine Kumin to Luisa Valenzuela, from Rita Dove to Elizabeth Jolley--the book is a pleasure and a faithful companion".--Publishers Weekly. "Twenty terrific women writers reveal a little something about their work, and about themselves. . . . A gift in every possible way".--Los Angeles Times.
