Conversations by Nina Corwin  

With Friendly Demons
And Tainted Saints

By Nina Corwin

Poet and performer Nina Corwin has thrilled many audiences with her insightful work.
In this collection of poems, she speaks to the importance of looking twice at the mythological
and ordinary world around us and the people who inhabit it. She gives a voice to those
whom we have elevated to heroes and those we wrote off with red pen, prejudice or moral

Praise for Nina Corwin's Work

Nina Corwin... is a poet who speaks with demons and with saints, finding both inadequate for our time, but having the wisdom to know that we must go through them and beyond them to find ourselves... Her strong, achingly clear voice has found its way across the boundries that usually cut off one person from another, and one neighborhood or social caste from another.

                    - Jared Smith, author of The Graves Grow Bigger Between Generations

Whether she is upbraiding the arrogance of gods or protesting the injustices inflicted on America's downtrodden, Corwin exhibits rock-solid wisdom washed by an ocean of empathy.

                    - Tim W. Brown, editor of Tomorrow Magazine

The mythic and the mundane merge intelligently in Nina Corwin's conversational tone. In Conversations, Nina, gives a funky literary accounting of lessons to remember.

                    - Angela Jackson, author of Dark Legs And Silk Kisses

Nina Corwin's poems resonate like the ring of fine crystal. Her insights into matters of the heart and soul combined with the beauty with which she expresses them will both inform and delight."

                    - Leonard Shlain, author of The Alphabet And The Goddess
