MY FRIENDS’ BOOKS ARE THE BEST BOOKS!
Luljeta Lleshanku’s miraculous collection “Child of Nature” brings serious poem-tears to my poemy eyes. In her second translated collection and her ninth book of poetry, Luljeta cleaves you open with tales from her broken country Albania, then fills you up with sweet little snippets from our shared humanity. “Two people form a habit, writes Lleshanaku; Three people make a story.” In Las Vegas, Luli invited me to join their family! They cooked Albanian food and told me everything. I miss my “adesh”, her daughter Lea, and her stunning daughter Lodia– a threesome to be reckoned with. Buy this for your whimsical granny, pining for the old country.
