A beautiful book. A travelogue among Amazons and a love poem to the women and men that writer Sonja Franeta met in her travels. These stories, poems, and essays have an intimate urgency. It feels as if the author is leaning toward us, across one of those small wooden tables she describes, as if she *needs* to tell us what she has discovered in her poignant and committed search. She has brought us back stories of love between women, of coupling despite suppression and repression. Stories of desire, and seductive landscapes that not many in the Western world have seen.
