About the Book
In this poetic memoir of a rough and tumble life, from her backwoods childhood without boundaries to a California urban adulthood filled with triumphs and disasters, Cassandra Dallett spares no details in a poetry memoir that reads like the love child of Charles Bukowski and Elizabeth Bishop. These are stories of an outsider, a perpetual misfit, offering a ceasefire in the war she wages with herself.
Cassandra Dallett's work has appeared in Slip Stream, Sparkle and Blink, Rusty Truck, Hip Mama, and the Criminal Class Review, among other publications. She currently occupies Oakland, California.
