Paying homage to the hardboiled crime-noir writing of Raymond Chandler, Diann Blakely's second collection of poetry plays on the dark desires and lusty appetites that motivate and move us. Originally published in 2000, Farewell, My Lovelies delivers unflinching truths harnessed in musical eloquence.
