Review quote

"Like the quilts pieced together by African American women, which appear and reappear throughout, the poems capture life's grand design through innumerable tiny details. Like the blues, which are another leitmotiv, the poems extemporize on life's difficulties and are creative through rather than in spite of them. The two themes work extremely well together." -- ALA Booklist
