In this Under the Covers episode, we meet Donna Love Wallace, author of her debut poetry chapbook, “Between the Stones.”

1 in 8 women will experience invasive breast cancer sometime during their life. With candor and a full range of emotion, Wallace navigates her way in poetry through disparate places and the people that occupy them: the biopsy suite, the grocery store, her closet and a tattoo parlor 350 miles from home.

“The poet captures dread with such precision on the page that you experience her off-stage desperation. Instead of recording emotions, [her] surreal scenes make you feel. When I finished Between Stones for the fourth time, I went out to pick up the morning paper. I noticed that my arms were flapping. I realized that Wallace’s magic had seized my subconscious mind. I wanted to fly.”—Michael Gaspeny, author of Re-Write Men and Vocation.
