DescriptionA dazzling poetic meditation on motherhood, female identity, ennui, and love by Greta Bellamacina, London-based poet, actress, filmmaker, and model. In Tomorrow's Woman, Greta Bellamacina's bold, exploratory voice combines the vivid imagery of French surrealism and British romantic poetry with a modern, first-person examination of love, gender identity, motherhood, and social issues. Andy Warhol's Interview Magazine writes that "Bellamacina is garnering critical acclaim for her way with words and her ability to translate the classic poetic form into the contemporary creative landscape." This is her first volume of her poetry to be released in the United States.
