Turning progressively darker, these nine poems finally emerge into the light of self-knowledge. The unnamed protagonist has the gift of imagination that helps lead her from one epiphany to the next. Growing up a vilified lesbian, she uses the powers of her own mind to defend against the pain and ennui of her youth. She returns to her family's neighbourhood a new person, capable, confident and happy. Uplifting and invigorating, A Happy Wanderer's Tales will inspire the reader to seek strength in the awareness that comes with imagining different worlds.
