Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0941483517, Paperback)

A rose is a rose is lifting belly is Gertrude Stein, a loving one. If you've read Stein before, you have probably heard the term "stream-of-consciousness." This erotic lesbian love poem is also a stream of pleasure and of love. Rebecca Mark's excellent introduction helps unravel some of the wonderful wordplay that Stein employs. Lifting Belly is a book to read aloud to someone who's your passion. Alone. In a romantic setting. Have some wine handy.
