The Laundromat Girl

Catalog Number: 
Book Kitzis, Lee
Date: 
2005
Edition: 
First
Abstract: 
"This compilation of Chicago working class poems is reminiscent of Sandburg's Windy City years in its big shoulder curbside observation. If you had just entered the pearly gates of heaven Lee's poetry would be there, but you'd find this book, a halo with dreams, on heaven's train tracks contemplating jumping the ledge and burning all the way down like a Parliament light.
