In Her Limitless Her Reihana Robinson has created a beguiling space for her to stretch on the page, and for joy to dance and grief to spin.

Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

In Her Limitless Her we see the bounty of women, bosom-packed, dreamy, heretical, fecund, dragging their offspring, twinsets askew, peeling, darning, preening. How far they will go, how far they can stretch - "breathing as if it is the only thing she can do." Spanning time and distance, crossing boundaries of culture and race, Reihana Robinson, in her second volume, plumbs the depths of love, anguish, memory and possibility.
