A Saturday Night at the Flying Dog

High-spirited and unpredictable, Marcia Southwick’s third collection is, among other things, a remarkable mirror of our place and time. With unrelenting curiosity and brio, she reflects our materialistic culture right back at us, showing us the world we live in with unflinching honesty and compassionate affection.
