Fiction. "After generations of women writers who helped women and men by saying what was wrong, Sharon Doubiago helps us even more by saying what could be right. She is sexual without submission, loving without loss of self, and free without rebellion. With a poet's power and a novelist's scope, she describes new feelings, new possibilities, and a new closeness to the natural world"--Gloria Steinem.
In order to be a poet, Sharon Doubiago's main home for many years has been her vehicles—an Ambassador station wagon named Roses, a Dodge van named Psyche, and a Ford conversion van named Valentine. A vagabond poet in the ancient tradition, she has lived, written taught and performed mainly on the West Coast, from Baja to British Columbia—most significantly the artist/poet towns of Mendocino, Ashland, Newport, Portland, and Port Townsend. Freed from the onerous burden of rent and permanency, living on the road enabled her to experience a broad spectrum of American life and culture and write full time, all of which is reflected in her many books.Author City: SAN FRANCISCO, CA USA
