Twenty years in bed with the same man

Book Cover
Average Rating
La Alameda Press,
Pub. Date:
Long-term relationships are a subject we don't hear much about today, but this book of love poems is a realistic and eloquent account of marital tenacity. The fifty poems in the collection move from the earliest "Taking Vows" to deal with "The Middles" and such subjects as "not committing adultery. This book was a finalist in the 1995 Western States Book Awards competition.

"A passionate, fragrant feast, a vast embrace. I love the wacky, wise humor of these poems best of all."--Naomi Shihab Nye

"Logghe has done more than hang her marital laundry out for everybody to see. She has touched it all with poetry in abundance and variety and with a generous heart to give it a life of its own."--"Rio Grande Sun

"In the tradition of Neruda, Joan weaves the everyday stuff of life--'Two for One Cokes, ' 'Oil of Olay, ' and the 'One Vine Loaded with White Grapes'--into shimmering garments of beauty. They are not one-size-fits-all, and that is the measure of their wisdom, and yes, their longevity."--Jim Sagel
