Julia gives an overview of the book:

Poetry about visionaries who survive hard times including pioneering jazz musicians and labor organizers in Guatamala and the United States taking on the impssible. The book pays homage to survivors of the horror in Chile of the 1970s, Guatemala and El Salvador in the 1980s, and refugees from Nazi Germany. The book, written in the 1980s, is really about surviving in opposition to President Regan's United States.  The cover photo if my grandmother Molly Polotkin and her good friend Dora Rosen, two Russian Jewish immigrant girls working in garment factory in Pittsburgh, Pennslvania, about 1910 dreaming themselves as Americans.
