PRAISE FOR ISOLATION JOURNAL
"Your book is a life jacket. Thank you. Merci, Gracias, Danke, Grazie! Parts of it sound like the rabbit that hops around inside my head, frenetic, needy, hilarious, hip, lonesome but enjoying my solitude, exhausted, inexhaustible. In short, I'm surprised and delighted by the slapstick and the dazzling word choices.
I love your work! I love Isolation Journal." –Pamela Davis
