About this title


"In The Hardness Scale, gestures and words we recognize as being of our world pour over immediately, through some new angle of perception, into another world, unpredicted and mysterious. This is made believable by a language that is always natural, the sound and rhythm of thought. Joyce Peseroff's brand of realism gives us back our lives transformed."
—Louis Simpson
