Channeling Mark Twain (Random House)
This novel revives the belief that poetry has a close connection to personal and political liberation. Muske-Dukes' narrator teaches a poetry workshop in a women's prison. Our conversation both celebrates and grieves for the once widely held conviction that Art can change life.
