What is special about this book? Each poem is illustrated by an original art quilt. Would you purchase "Naked" for a gift? I would indeed! Not only for gifts but for my own enjoyment as well--- I was totally transported elsewhere and happily mesmerized reading your works - You truly are Brilliant! Best of everything!
