Poetry. "After Holly Prado's majestic selected poems, THESE MIRRORS PROVE IT, it's an added delight to encounter her in the more casual and playful setting of MONKEY JOURNAL. In this intimate chronicle of her days and nights, Prado keeps her own rock-solid, good-humored and frequently musical counsel. She's a treasure"--Aram Saroyan. Other Holly Prado titles available from SPD include the recent FROM ONE TO THE NEXT (2008) and ESPERANZA: POEMS FOR ORPHEUS (1998).
