Rain Dances in the Desert
Jas James, author
The journey of living told through raw poetry and nostalgic prose. It is the story of nearly ten thousand days of life, all of the pain, and all of the glory. An exploration of what it is to balance continuing and conflicting emotions with healthy and heart wrenching recovery. A powerful exercise in using a newly-found voice to express oneself, without losing sight of all the history that has created the person living today. This memoir-type collection of poetry explores themes of childhood, sexual assault, hope, friendship, grief and neonatal loss, betrayal, sexuality, anxiety, motherhood and feminism.
