Suzi F. Garcia’s Dorothy is blown apart by gale forces and put together again in a deconstruction of girlhood—and its Hollywood irrealities—that strikes at the very heart of fantasy, faith, and survival. These poems are electric, bursting forth like images on the silver screen: magical, sensual, and powerful.
