The Other Side: shorter poems
from the book...
On a journey back in time, a young woman recounts her thoughts about growing up in Shorter, Alabama - about the people and the landscape of her childhood and adolescence. Angela Johnson has created a narrator with a clear voice, rich in emotion, that young and old alike will understand.
Her deceptively simple poems are focused, honest, and thoughtful.
