Writing in Wet Cement
Jayne Lisbeth, author
Writing In Wet Cement is an intimate portrait which joins together the tapestry of life from the ‘60s era of sex, drugs and rock and roll through the hippie and feminist movements of the ‘70s and ‘80s to our current era. Ms Lisbeth’s journey takes the reader from her privileged childhood in New York where tragic loss is suffered. The journey continues from Vermont to Massachusetts and California to her current home in the Tampa Bay area. The deep enduring womenship of friends and their recognition of her emotionally abusive marriage plays an important role in the healing process which relates to all women and men. The discovery of her mother’s secret history from 1912 Brooklyn though the 1929 depression to the glittering avenues of Manhattan in the forties and fifties plays an important role. The knowledge gleaned from her mother’s hidden past provides Ms. Lisbeth with the courage to escape from the velvet trap of emotional abuse. Writing In Wet Cement is a tale which resonates with both women and men. Ms. Lisbeth takes the reader on a personal journey of sensuality, honesty and renewal filled with beautiful painterly prose.
