Pleiades Book Review

Dolls, Freaks, Art: American Poets Creating a New Mythology by Christine Butterworth-McDermott

Very happy about the glowing review of Devil’s Paintbrush in The Pleiades Book Review by Christine Butterworth-McDermott in which she says “Alvarez’s work is blessed by unique language” and “her world is one in which self-made magic, how we observe and envision and assemble, becomes paramount to full engagement.” Feeling very honored, thank you Pleiades, Christine Butterworth-McDermott, and Bauhan Publishing.
