Balancing heart-intelligent intimacy and surprising humor, the poems in Ellen Bass s "Mules of Love" illuminate the essential dynamics of our lives: family, community, sexual love, joy, loss, religion and death. The poems also explore the darker aspects of humanity personal, cultural, historical and environmental violence all of which are handled with compassion and grace. Bass s poetic gift is her ability to commiserate with others afflicted by similar hungers and grief. Her poem "Insomnia" concludes: "may something/ comfort you a mockingbird, a breeze, rain/ on the roof, Chopin s Nocturnes, the thought/ of your child s birth, a kiss, / or even me in my chilly kitchen/ with my coat on thinking of you."Marketing Plans: National advertising National media campaign Advance reader copies Course adoption mailing Author Tour: Berkeley Boston Minneapolis San Francisco Santa Cruz Ellen Bass is co-author (with Laura Davis) of the best-selling "The Courage to Heal: A Guide for Women Survivors of Child Sexual Abuse" (Harper Collins 1988, 1994), which has sold more than one million copies and has been translated into nine languages.
