Booklet published by Commonword in 1979, 63 pages. A5 size booklet. (S6617WSO)
From the rear side cover: I now write seriously because I feel a woman does not own a voice just to sing lullabies or scold her husband. Women have something to say. I have something to say, and stories to tell. I do hope you enjoy this book - I enjoyed writing it. Much in here is written for people who think they dislike poetry, who feel it may be too high brow for the working class.... its not you know... it is the working class.
Condition of the booklet is generally ok. The cover has several minor scuffs and blemishes, and some nibblign and wear along the edges, and there is yellowing and discolouration to the front and rear sides, but the staple spine is intact, and all pages are intact, unblemished and tightly bound. There is yellowing to the inside pages throughout.
