A novel-in-progress by Deena Metzger dramatized for radio by Everett Frost. The work is a feminist testament to the attempt by women to join inner to outer experience so as to overcome a world conditioned by murder, rape, death, cancer and madness. The drama focuses on four women - Diana, the writer; Arda, the witness; Ana, the survivor; and Alma, the silent history - who become the voices of voiceless women, making desperate conversations and writing letters which keep them alive. Partially financed by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.
