About the Author
"In the very first poem of The Walk to Cefalù, Lynne Viti both recollects her childhood and announces her MO: 'Beneath each tale, I sensed another/-a truer-story, an alternative text/a painful experience smoothed over.' Telling that 'alternative' story behind the story-the tender elegy beneath the smoothed over surface-'that's my job.' In these engaging, intelligent, and touching poems, Viti fulfills her admirable intentions."
-Lloyd Schwartz, author of Who's on First?: New and Selected Poems
"Viti's poems are beautiful, eloquent, and they speak about a life lived. A life examined. Her memories take us on a journey."
-Gloria Mindock, author of Ash
"Viti mines rich veins of memory and experience to bring us vivid moments, both recent and past, with the wisdom and grace of a poet who has navigated-and survived-this wild, dangerous, and beautiful world."
-Matt Hohner, author of Thresholds and Other Poems
"Lynne Viti honors life. . . . This is a book 'to help us map/the deepest, most human things.'"
-J.D. Scrimgeour, author of Lifting the Turtle
