Channeling the collection’s muse, jazz composer and pianist Mary Lou Williams, Hemming the Water speaks to the futility of trying to mend or straighten a life that is constantly changing. Here the spiritual and the secular comingle in a “Fierce fragmentation, lonely tune.” Harvey inhabits, challenges, and explores the many facets of the female self—as daughter, mother, sister, wife, and artist. Every page is rich with Harvey’s rapturous music.

“There is no rest in this extraordinary debut book by Yona Harvey. It is a book in which the devastation is still very much alive.” — Toi Derricotte

YONA HARVEY is a literary artist living in Pittsburgh, and the recipient of a 2012 Individual Artist Grant from The Pittsburgh Foundation.
