Joelle Taylor author
the woman who was not there
"The title misleads us, as these are the tumultuously heart-rending words of a woman who is actually very much here, there, everywhere. Joelle Taylor has written an epic collection of raw emotion distilled into a distinctly unique style of language. Put this in your bag, on your tongue, in your chest."
