This collection reflects the author's deeply rooted passion for nature, for life, and for being. Agosin spent her summers at the Chilean seaside, near Neruda's home at Isla Negra. "The sea, the rocks, marine images became important elements in my creative work," she said recently. Here she creates a world where everything touches the sea and is, in turn, touched by it, a world peopled by those who "carry the scents of the river and the sign of water." "Agosin's voice [is] ripe with sensuality."-- Booklist
