Write The First Customer Review

Winner of the 1997 White Pine Press Poetry Prize, the poetry of Jacqueline Joan Johnson has appeared in numerous journals and magazines. Reviewer Maurice Kenny writes, "Johnson's collection holds not only the spirit and sensuous quality of Alabama but also the concrete strengths of Brooklyn. Ms. Johnson's lush language has the texture of quince and the durability of earth. These memorable poems are sturdy reminders of what life in contemporary America is".
