Finders by Julie Parson-Nesbitt  

By Julie Parson-Nesbitt

Julie Parson-Nesbitt's volume of poetry is a Chicago
book with a history behind it. In these poems she
navigates the street-wise world of the personal; comes
to terms with love and interraccial marriage; and
undertakes a political response to her Jewish heritage.
Her poems breathe a spirit of independence reminiscent
of Emma Lazarus, Emma Goldman, and Adrienne Rich. Long
accustomed to a multicultural community, Parson-Nesbitt
writes and performs in an astonishing variety of moods
and idioms. This book's cover was specially created by
award-winning Chicago artist Tony Fitzpatrick.
