Descripción de editorial
After the fictional village of Eros is destroyed by a cyclone in the 1920s, some residents remain, rebuilding and maintaining their friendships. Others are not so happy but remain there until death.
In her third collection of poems, Mary Elizabeth Lee shares the fascinating perspectives of the deceased residents of Eros as they describe their lives and challenges. Nellie Blight is a cook who takes pride in creating delicious pies and cakes. But when she becomes a scorned lover, she stops baking and carries out an unimaginable act. Cleveland Spongy is an undertaker who realizes too late that his profession is a lifetime challenge. Gulliver Black is a frisky store clerk who never married or dated and instead receives his jollies from from looking and touching. Mr. Leonus Stampers unpainted house does not hide the kindness inside, for he loves feeding sweetened evaporated milk and biscuits to hungry neighbor children.
Letters from Eros offers a lyrical glimpse into the residents of a make-believe village as they each leave their mark on the world.
