Powell's Books review of Between Soul and Stone: http://tinyurl.com/o585t49




Her latest book, Between Soul and Stone, is incredible. This may sound trite, but I can't help but identify Berdeshevsky's work as being like a gossamer web: intensely beautiful, painstakingly crafted into textually dense strands of poetic light.—Chris Faatz/Powells Books Blog

(*Robert Olen Butler) **************** & **************** Author of **************** *BETWEEN SOUL and STONE* (Sheep Meadow Press) _______MARGO BERDESHEVSKY____ understands the diabolical complexity of the human heart, and how eros is a form of intelligence as well as a drive.
