Today Songs of Ourselves, an anthology of 24 writers’ experiences growing up in America, was listed on Amazon.com. It is a multi-layered anthology of many experiences in the spirit of Walt Whitman.
Songs of Ourselves is important among new books at a time when defining who is an American, and what that experience may be, has been challenged and redefined through an ever-narrowing lens. This book is a wide lens on the American Odyssey. Published by Blue Heron Book Works, it is well worth the read.
