This breathtaking collection of poems by award-winning Nevada poet Gailmarie Pahmeier explores the many facets of a woman's experience. Told largely through the voice of a fictional character, ""Emma,"" the poems display a range of moods, from tender to wry, ironic, tough, lyrical, reckless. Pahmeier's voice is uniquely her own-strong, profoundly wise, rich in humor and subtlety, utterly feminine. She understands how women live, how they love, and what they need. Ultimately, she teaches us ""what comes of it, of love.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Pahmeier's is a purely American poetry, a tough female vision that includes the language of baseball and bread baking, well-tuned transmissions and hard-packed snow, truckstops and 'wound-red lipstick.' Dorianne Laux--Dorianne Laux"
"Pahmeier has a remarkable ability to plumb the labyrinths of the heart through a sharp focus on human connections that consider the complexity of love in a world where we happen to find ourselves, both in an external sense and as the external applies to the landscape of the soul."The House on Breakaheart Road"allows us to consider the beauty as well as the agony of our deepest and most heartfelt binding human characteristics." David Lee--David Lee"
This is an emotionally centered, powerful work that is beautifully written and wholly engaging. Robert Wynne, "Next "October 1998--Robert Wynne "Next ""
These remarkably clear and concise poems examine a number of real life situations father-daughter relationships, learning to drive, baseball and moving, both from one place to another and just moving on. But the earnest territory of the poems is the complexity of love and what it means, how it shifts between those gray areas of out-there and in-here. . . . These poems allow us to locate our own selves through a subtle and evocative blending of memories-past with the present, and by allowing us to conjure what we might make of it all, right here, right now, in the midst of our own real-life situations. Kirk Robertson, "Reno News and Review," 8 July 1998--Kirk Robertson "Reno News and Review ""
