“I made this book as my master’s thesis at the University of Alabama. It is the latest output of a collaborative process with the writer, and my good friend, Joanna Ruocco. The content concerns the quotidian, the erotic, and the sometimes violent interactions occuring during the course of everyday activities within domestic spaces.”Prose poems by Joanna Ruocco.
