Review

" Hamill, poet and translator, has created a ravishing anthology of poetry celebrating the spiritual aspect of eros, the longing not only to merge one's body with another, but to join souls." — "Booklist"

"From the swift grip and succor of today's Dorianne Laux to the flowers-in-a-shell plums of ancient Tzu Yeh, these are voices echoing off the walls of a cave, becoming one voice, one song of eros. I've seen no better collection."—Lily Pond, editor of "Yellow Silk: A Journal of the Erotic Arts "

Format: Paperback
Contained in this book are the most passionate, grippings poems I have ever encountered. Each night before bed, I pick one poem from the book at random and read it. It is the perfect way to end my day. The poets' words are amazing, stirring, honest and alive.
