Denise Dee:

Union of Opposites
636 Hyde St. #301
San Francisco CA, 94109

106 pp., $5.00

There are writers who entertain, and writers that grab you deep in your emotional gut and bring out feelings you didn't even know you were capable of. Denise does both, and in her new book SOWKINS you get tossed into an honest portrayal of emotional threads being torn apart one string at a time, often bringing one to the brink of an abyss so dark and lonely that survival itself is questioned. There are too many stories, too many insights, too many whiplashed emotions to capture in a review. This is simply one of the best thing I have read this year, and I can say with all honesty that I am jealous of Denise' s ability to capture such intensity on the page.--oberc
