where the writers are

Kathleen Jesme's Books

"This book-length memditation is part memoir, part spiritual diary, but first and foremost, pure poem. Set in and submitted to the rigors of convent life, these lyrics shine with winter light. Jesme writes: 'my flexible voice/ my ecstasy/ I learn that prayer/ is either silence/ or song.' Few writers are as adept as she is at listening to both." -Elaine Equi
