Local notes

"Naomi Lowinsky has given us a remarkable, fearless, and full autobiography. Speaking in poetic, psychologically sensitive, scholarly dialogues with her shape-shifting muse, she has created a new form . . . This is a beautiful book to treasure and spread among worthy friends." --Sylvia Perera, Author of 'Descent to the Goddess' and 'Celtic Queen Maeve and Addiction.' ". . . Naomi Ruth Lowinsky offers us a superbly detailed investigation of the powerful, mythic forces of the world as they are revealed to the active creative self. Don't miss this enlightening and fascinating book." --David St. John, Author of 'Study for the World's Body: New and Selected Poems' and 'Prism.' "Naomi's poetry and prose is infused with the suffering and joys of humans everywhere. Insightful and deeply moving, she brings us the food and water of life." --Joan Chodorow, Author of 'Dance Therapy and Depth Psychology', editor of 'C.G. Jung on Active Imagination.' "A passionate love letter to those who yearn to be heard. A must read for every woman who longs to write poetry." --Maureen Murdock, Author of The Heroine's Journey and Unreliable Truth: On Memoir and Memory. "Naomi Ruth Lowinsky reinterprets mythic and historical reality in provocative versions of the stories of Eurydice, Helen, Ruth, Naomi, and Sappho. The voice of the Sister from Below argues, cajoles, prods, explains, and yes, loves her human counterpart, and becomes the inspiration for Lowinsky's stunning poetry in this highly original book." --Betty de Shong Meador, Author of Inanna, Lady of Largest Heart and Princess, Priestess, Poet.
