Reviews / Endorsements

“In The Window Facing Winter, the urgency of the beautiful and sometimes murderous urban landscape, set alongside the seductive, intricate oasis of the Japanese garden, renders possible a vision into 'a sliver of the absolute.' With unflinching accuracy, LaFemina delivers a sacred, if momentary, world, laying bare its essential loneliness, its obstinate beauty.”—Robin Behn
