POETRY SUPER HIGHWAY BOOKSTORE

   Featured this week in the Poets of the Week Books section of the PSH 
   Bookstore:

   DUTIES OF THE SPIRIT by PATRICIA FARGNOLI

   Readers will discover many facets of Fargnoli's voice, but two
   attributes that will most impress readers are, first, the almost
   shimmering gladness with which Ms. Fargnoli replies to the gifts of
   beauty and of human love; and, second, the compassion with which she
   addresses whatever is beyond her own intimate surroundings."-Mary
   Oliver

   Duties of the Spirit comprises deeply moving, lyrical and
   unforgettable explorations of the joys and fears that come with
   growing older in America.

   Patricia Fargnoli, a retired psychotherapist, is a Macdowell fellow
   and associate editor of The Worcester Review. Her first book,
   Necessary Light, was selected by Mary Oliver for the May Swenson
   Poetry Award, Utah State University Press, 1999.

   Paperback, 80 pages, published by Tupelo Press, (April, 2005)
