New work. Two women - one black, one white - become "critique" partners in a memoir writing class. What starts out as a writing critique turns into a penetrating dive into each other's lives, including hard choices in love, work, art and aging. Can they be allies for each on this writer's journey or will hard words fly, old wounds fester, and women weep? And what does it matter?
Writing a life - no, living a life, is Hazardous Beauty.
part of Fertile Ground, a city-wide festival of new works.
