In poems rich with sensuality and discord, Mukomolova explores her complex identity--Russian, Jewish, refugee, New Yorker, lesbian-- through the Russian tale of Vasilyssa, a young girl left to fend for herself against the witch Baba Yaga. Heavy with family and fable, these poems are a beautiful articulation of difference under duress.
