The Armadillo Who Won the Fight
Bloomington, IN (Vocus) October 26, 2010
Author Donna Susan West invites readers to let go and remember as she presents a wonderful collection of shorts and poems about Life Love and Other Stuff.
West’s debut work, Life Love and Other Stuff, contains bits and pieces of life and love in the form of short stories and poetry which are sometimes funny and poignant. She pays tribute to her beloved stepson Kjell in the poem “Kjell’s Walk” and salutes those who are called to serve the country in “And Still They March.” She reminisces on life in the Deep South and shares amusing anecdotes like “The Armadillo Who Won the Fight” and “Nothin’ Like Cornbread.” The author also delves into “The Thing About Coinciding Dates” and attempts to unravel its the intriguing, mystifying connection. Readers can find more fascinating tales and poems as they browse through the pages.
The author reveals that some of the best memories are the ones that happen once in a long while. She has captured some of her cherished moments and preserved them in this memorable anthology. Her poetry will tug at readers’ hearts and her stories will take them to a time they forgot existed. Truth lives in light, not darkness. West invites readers to always remember as they embrace Life Love and Other Stuff.
This book will be featured at this year’s New York Library Association Book Exhibit in Saratoga Springs, NY on November 2-5, 2010. For more information, log on to Xlibris.com.
