Linda Lerner Reviews "the woman who who wouldn't shake hands" by Chocolate Waters for BigCityLit
Some excerpts from Linda Lerner's review:
"We hear what we read on the page, and what we hear will linger, like a melody, in our minds."
Linda examines the "unexpected turns [Waters'] poems take" and the author's "playing with a word as in a jazz riff" citing several examples from the book.
