Next to the Last Word
By Susan Bright
The "Dark Lady" cycle allows the nameless woman Shakespeare wrote about to speak. She time-travels, is a universal witness whose wise cracks snap at the human condition. Pure invention, she lives in Elizabethan England, contemporary Detroit, Calcutta or downtown Austin. "Five hundred years on this planet and her story doesn't end."
Eve La Salle Caram, novelist,
Craig Czury, Poet-in-Schools, PA
