Father made me his orient jade child a dervish of cellular memories and Buddhist dreams dancing in rainstorms with wolves howling through my bones and Arabian stallions beating gilded hooves into the cherry wood of their stalls enchanted into the perfumed skin I wore so fine with gems for eyes... —excerpt from “Artifact” The Raspberry Girl is a tale of survival enmeshed in brilliant, eclectic prose and fleshed out in enriched myths turned inside out. Selene spins a tale of a fragmented girl grown brilliant and blazing into the skin of a woman like a golden Pandora whose box of inlaid sins are like jewels scattered into the mouth of the world. There is a taste of the sweetest waters of beauty, pain, and ultimately, a catharsis blazing with power.
