Their writing is a rich mixof poetry and prose, their approaches as diverse as thewriters themselves. Their stories and poems are moving,insightful, and sometimes startling. The observations wefind there are frequently offbeat, slyly humorous, andthe joy of playing with language is everywhere evident”.Catherine Dunne and Federica Sgaggio
