"'The Stubborn Particulars of Grace' is a new collection of poems from Bronwen Wallace, a gifted and award-winning poet. It is a book about commitment, about what happens after you come of age. Social promise, individual freedom, politically correct attitudes are not enough today. Wallace speaks to us, in a voice that we immediately recognize as close to our own, of the need for a coherent vision. She awakens us to our own reality andmakes us feel that the disparate elements of experience order the nature o f our being. By seeing our lives in terms of a larger personal perspective,we become open, human, and intact." - from the rear cover. Includes the fo llowing poems: "Appeal"; 1.
