Synopsis

Where River Meets Ocean by Devorah Major

This collection of poetry begins with the poet's inaugural address as Laureate of San Francisco, a sparkling essay that shows how poetry can please and empower. Strong, introspective and caring, major's poems capture the challenge and joy of being an artist, as they survey the political and social landscapes of one of America's favorite cities. A visionary of hope, with a heart big enough to embrace every neighborhood, street and alley in this magical and -poetical city. Here is a poet who shoots straight as Cupid's arrow. Zing! Right to the heart. -Alejandro Murguia devorah major is a poet, novelist, and essayist who has published prize-winning works of fiction and poetry. Among her books are Open Weave,Brown Glass Windows, and Street Smarts. She lives in San Francisco and works as an editor and arts administrator.
