Nina Romano's beautifully rendered elegy to her mother conveys the intensity of a daughter's love--profoundly on display. Romano moves from the lyric to the narrative, always staying true to place and time and surety of voice. I can't wait to share this with my customers. They're in for a real treat.

Nina’s Poem: “Out of Chaos”
Book Review by Liana Metal
Lush and lyrical, funny and mundane, Nina Romano’s second bound poetry collection is presented in two parts.
Recently in an interview with Linda Bladholm, I said, It all begins with family and stories around the table-food is love, communion, spirituality, poetry, and our histories are the way we break bread with our ancestors. That’s why food is in my poetry and ficiton … and yes, non-ficiton too!
I love writing and reading they pump my blood to lub-dub it through my heart as I learn about life. I wrote poems growing up in Brooklyn, began my first novel when I was sixteen in Garden City. But with nothing earth-shattering to say, decided to live life instead and write about it later in novels.
