Sena Jeter Naslund

If you meet a woman of whatever complexion who sails her life with strength and grace and assurance, talk to her! And what you will find is that there has been a suffering, that at some time she has left herself for hanging dead. —  Sena Jeter Naslund, Ahab’s Wife, or The Star-Gazer. (William Morrow Paperbacks August 2, 2005) Originally published September 22nd 1999.
