With these short stories, deeply indebted to Sufi Tales and Jataka stories (as well as to the Brothers Grimm and American folktales), Steven Nightingale offers testimonies of revelation, mischief, miracles, and grace given him by sixty-four remarkable women who've appeared in his life over time.

These delightful pieces combine humor and sensuality with surrealism and an oblique spirituality, and each becomes an opportunity of gentle instruction, invention, and entertainment. The book describes a spiritual pilgrimage, beautifully written, a unique offering from this wonderful writer.
STEVEN NIGHTINGALEis the author of twonovels and six books of sonnets, as well as numerousessays. His poetry has been widely anthologized, andhe has taught poetry in more than fifty schools anduniversities. He lives in Woodside, California, withhis family.
