ISBN: 093112283X. OCLC Number: 34561973 West End Press ;. . Julie Parson-Nesbitt's first volume of poetry is a Chicago book with a history behind it. In these poems she navigates the streetwise world of the personal; comes to terms with love and interracial marriage; and undertakes a political response to her Jewish heritage. Her poems breathe a spirit of independence reminiscent of Emma Lazarus, Emma Goldman, and Adrienne Rich. Long accustomed to a multicultural community, Parson-Nesbitt writes and performs in an astonishing variety of moods and idioms.
