Apprentice to the Flower Poet Z by Debra Weinstein
I thoroughly enjoyed this book but I wonder whether it would be very appealing to someone who had not read much poetry. There are numerous references to Emily Dickinson, James Joyce, Virginia Woolf and others. The characters read more like caricatures of writers and literary wannabes. I would recommend this book to English majors and would-be poets.
